Install the virtual machine that comes with OpenCV and the  American X-Ray Journal , prepared for you to image-mine.

Download journals in bulk from the Medical Heritage Library .

If you want to use the locate-figures.py script included in your virtual machine, you’ll need to divide the journals (which are downloaded as PDFs) into many individual JPGs.

(You’ll also need to install GhostScript in order to do this.)

If this all sounds like a headache, you have a couple other options.
