The entire collection of image and metadata files is now available for download from the NLM Data Distribution webpage
. While the RxImage API remains available, this new resource will greatly facilitate bulk download of the Pill Image Collection.
The RxImage Application Programming Interface (API) is an online resource from the National Library of Medicine (NLM) Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications
for searching and retrieving digital images and associated metadata for prescription oral solid dosage formulations (tablets, gel caps and capsules, etc. – commonly known as pills) from a publicly available, standardized, curated database.
A list of all parameters which can be used with the RxImage API can be found here:
