Abstract: 

Authors of biomedical publications frequently use images to illustrate various medical concepts. Use annotation markers: arrows, letters, or symbols overlaid on figures and illustrations to highlight ROIs. Annotations are then referenced and correlated with concepts in the caption text. Users often seeking images similar with respect to ROI, but are limited to similarity of the entire image.
