In this case, this is "fair use". Single use, non-commercial, educational - fine. I would hesitate if the image were to be posted on the web available to all, without attribution.

I "fair use" medical photos for lectures to medical students. The lecture is available by password only on the students' intranet. If the lecture were to be published on the public internet, I would seek permission for image use.
