User description[edit]

Mikael Häggström in 2017.
In Tibet, 2005.

Mikael Häggström is a Doctor of Medicine, and the creator of WikiJournal of Medicine, as well as Radlines.

He was born in Gothenburg, Sweden, and is a grandchild of Estonian historian Karin Aasma. He grew up in Uddevalla on the Swedish west coast. He decided to become a doctor while backpacking for half a year in 2005, taking the Trans-Siberian train to China and crossing the Himalayas from Tibet to Nepal. He graduated from Uppsala University, Faculty of Medicine in 2013. He is currently working as a physician under specialist training in radiology at the NU Hospital Group, Sweden.

He has contributed to Wikipedia since 2006, including a multitude of medical images. He is the creator and current editor-in-chief of WikiJournal of Medicine, a new Wikipedia-integrated, peer-reviewed, open-access academic journal.[1] He is also the creator of Radlines, an international, collaborative, non-profit, ad-free and open access encyclopedia in radiology.

Publication of images[edit]


For editors wanting to know what attribution to use when including one of my pictures in a work, essentially all my images up to 2014 are included in an image collection which may be attributed as:


  • By Mikael Häggström, used with permission.

Some later images, as well as collaboarations, can be viewed at: User:Mikael Häggström/Gallery, with attributions described at that page.

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).

If the license (as given under the "Licensing" section of the image description page) has "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".

High resolution versions[edit]

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 Inkscape, GIMP and MS Paint to create images.

Edit summary terminology[edit]

In my edit summaries, + means "addition of ..." and (a dash) means "removal of ...". For verbs that may not be found in a standard dictionary, those ending with the past tense suffix -ed should correlate with a common noun or verb after removal of that suffix. Similarly, a prefix of de- should mean an opposite, a negation or a removal of whatever verb follows. For still incomprehensible terminology, please notify me on talk page.
