Employing a lexicon specific to dermatology
Our multiaxial image and case repository matches the language of medicine and healthcare, allowing intuitive retrieval of cases, images, and content. Once scanned, each image is tagged with searchable terms (diagnosis, skin type, body location, and lesion type).
Going Digital Takes Know-How
Successfully digitizing a photographic collection requires sophisticated scanning equipment, highly skilled operators, and an efficient, thoughtful workflow. VisualDx imaging specialists are highly knowledgeable and experienced in clinical image-making and are familiar with the special nature of skin disease, subtle variation, and morphology. Each image is carefully evaluated and optimized after scanning to restore the original intent and maintain consistent overall quality.
Using Images from VisualDx
Medical images play an important role in educating students, residents, and even seasoned providers. The VisualDx image library and dark skin atlas has been developed through partnerships with exceptional learning institutions and providers. These contributors strongly believe in the importance of images to enhance scholarship, teaching, and learning in medicine. VisualDx shares this belief. In support of shared learning, please see our guidelines for the use of images and Sympticons™ in educational and non-commercial settings.
