Reusing my images


For editors wanting to know what

which means that you can copy, modify, distribute and perform the works, even for commercial purposes, all without asking permission. If you still want to add an attribution, you may write for example:

  • By Mikael Häggström.



If the license has "SA" or "share-alike" in its name, then a license description should be included in the attribution as well, such as "released under the Attribution-Share Alike 3.0 Unported license". If there the image description mentions several authors, an addition such as "Created by [other image author(s)] and Mikael Häggström, MD".

Essentially all my images up to 2014 are included in an image collection which may also be attributed as:

Attributions may be written in the image caption, or in a separate reference list.

Images created after December 2018 have been sorted into categories at: Commons:Category:Mikael Häggström (with an ongoing process to sort even earlier images to there as well).

Informed consent

For radiology images uploaded by me as own work, written or verbal informed consent has been obtained for online publication from all depicted individuals.

For pathology images, consent from the patient or patient's relatives is regarded as redundant, because of absence of identifiable features (List of HIPAA identifiers) in the media and case information (See also HIPAA case reports guidance).

High resolution versions

The image version of highest resolution is generally found by clicking the "Full resolution" link, located below the image on its description page.


I am now most active in Wikiversity, as editor-in-chief of Wikiversity Journal of Medicine. In Wikipedia, I frequently add radiologic images (with written consent from the subjects), and I often correct or add to the prose of articles.


I use

MS Paint
to create images.
