Talk:WikiJournal of Medicine/Medical gallery of David Richfield 2014

I tracked the source information of the "Life cycle of Echinococcus" image to a CDC as now given on the image description page, which I regard as a reliable source. The derived image faithfully displays the same information as the source image, except for a lower degree of image details of the echinococcosus stages. As far as I can see, the diagram has been on display in the Echinococcus article since April 2014 [], so it has practically received some peer review from readers as well.
The myofibril and sarcomere images both represent a topic that is covered extensively by similar images out there on the Internet, none of which I find contradictory to this representation. The myofibril image has 8 years of display time in the Wikipedia:Myofibril article [], and the sarcomere image has similar years of display in multiple articles (Actin, Muscle contraction, Myofibril, Myosin, Sarcomere and Titin), indicating both usefulness in the encyclopedia as well as exposure to peer review from readers.
The P450 catalytic cycle is based on information that is comprehensively described in text and referenced on the image description page. It has been on display in the Cytochrome P450 article since July 2008 [], and has been corrected according to feedback it has received from Rob Scarrow.
Altogether, I have the impression that these images are accurate.
I am a fellow Wikipedia editor with David Richfield (and we've worked together on the File:Steroidogenesis.svg image), and I practically do a bit of everything at Wikiversity Journal, otherwise I state no potential conflicts of interest.

anonymous peer reviewer ,
An update of the peer review is now needed because of a now different choice of included images.
The image of the P450 catalytic cycle has been disputed (see Wikipedia:User_talk:Slashme/Archive_6#P450_Mechanism, and is taken down from here until this issue is resolved.
The image of anatomical planes has been on display at Wikipedia:Anatomical plane since October last year without having been disputed ([]). The image corresponds well to external sources such as in [this Anatomical Terminology course by the National Cancer Institute], but it would be even better to have such a reference in the image description as well.
The image of anatomical planes applied to the head is basically a zoom in of the previous image, so the same comment as above applies.
The image of anatomical planes applied to the brain is not now included in any Wikipedia article as far as I can see, but it corresponds well to external sources such as [this presentation by Dr. Uzwiak's at Rutgers University–New Brunswick]. Again, it would be even better to have such a reference in the image description as well.
