(e.g., dermatology, infectious disease, ophthalmology, oral medicine, international travel, acute pulmonary infections, STDs, etc.)
Unlike textbooks and online resources that require knowing the name of the diagnosis to look up images and information, VisualDx builds a patient-specific pictorial differential diagnosis based on the patient’s findings. The clinician can compare diseases side by side and then drill down to see the range in presentation within each disease in the differential. (light skin, dark skin, early/late stage, unusual presentations, severe cases, etc.) Handbook length text on each disease also is included to help guide diagnostic decision making and learn more about appropriate tests and treatment.
