"I am a pediatrician in a small town, and I treat patients with a variety of conditions—some of which I have never seen before. The medical facilities in the town are very poor, and VisualDx has been a great benefit to my practice. The tool assists me in diagnosis and management of difficult or unfamiliar cases. VisualDx can help physicians all over the world learn a lot in a limited period of time. The image database is vast, and I now contribute my own clinical images to the international collection."
