Medical Images Available

The Wellcome Library has made the their Wellcome Images available under the Creative Commons License. Users are allowed to copy, distribute, and display images, as long as they are used for non commercial purposes and the source is fully attributed.

I keep thinking there has got to be a good way to organize and search all of these images from all over the internet. Is del.icio.us or other tagging applications a viable option. There doesn't seem to be a good database that keeps track of all them (like a Medline for images) and that is a shame because there are a lot of good images that can be used, if they can be found.
