What is VisualDx?
You are in the clinic or on hospital rounds and see an oral mucosal lesion, eye lesion, or skin rash and you cannot recognize the diagnosis. VisualDx is the tool that will help you make that diagnosis!
VisualDx is a diagnostic clinical decision support and reference tool of over 1,300 pediatric and adult conditions represented by nearly 30,000 images designed to aid students, residents, and clinicians with specialty level diagnostic and therapeutic expertise including dermatology, infectious disease, ophthalmology, oral medicine, emergency medicine, and more. Easily accessible from your laptop, desktop, or mobile device, VisualDx is designed to logically help you develop a differential based on the patient history and your exam findings.
Benefits for Medical Students and Residents
- The best medical image collection in the world teaches you the common presentations and the variants – VisualDx captures disease variation by age, body location, skin type, immune status, disease stage, disease severity, lesion type, and more.
- Problem oriented to match medical education – VisualDx provides expert information on dermatologic, infectious, genetic, metabolic, nutritional and occupational diseases, injuries, benign and malignant growths, and internal and systemic diseases but does so in a problem-oriented format, reinforcing the clinical decision-making process.
- Nearly 30,000 images make for the most comprehensive board review and reference source available today.
VisualDx at Your Institution
Over 50% of US medical schools already license VisualDx. You can receive VisualDx if your medical library or Chief Medical Information Officer decides to license. Typically these professionals will license tools if their students, residents, or clinicians are asking for a particular resource. Contact our Sales Department to get a trial for you and your colleagues. If your institution has UpToDate, learn more about how VisualDx is integrated into UpToDate.
