VisualDx in Practice
"Now that I have VisualDx mobile on my Droid, I often share images with patients. I had a gentleman with classic erythematous nodules on his anterior shins, and even though I knew the diagnosis of erythema nodosum, I was able to reassure him of the accuracy of the diagnosis by showing him VisualDx pictures with my phone." – Dr. Richard Dudrak, Lifetime Health, NY
