There are a few exceptions like the PDR which has photos of the drugs for visual comparison, but those are the exceptions.
That would be even easier with an ebook. You can cross reference throughout the entire book with a simple search. You can add notes to the reference, add the reference to your notes, or a separate "chapter" that you create, and access it quickly and easily for a particular project or patient. If you do need to add an image, video or webpage, you can add that to that specific file, and make it searchable by using, "Search book and My notes."
At first it will seem weird, and awkward to use digital search instead of the appendix, but once you get used to it, it's easier and faster.
