Everyone deserves a timely and accurate diagnosis.

For too long, patients with pigmented skin have been marginalized and faced worse outcomes than their peers with lighter skin colors. Textbooks, dermatology atlases, and other resources have traditionally underrepresented presentations of disease in people of color.

For over 20 years, VisualDx has been committed to providing a comprehensive resource for medical images across all skin types. We know the importance of helping healthcare professionals with the challenges and subtleties of recognizing skin changes in patients with darker skin pigmentation. Equally important is the ability to engage with patients of color by showing them images that look like them or the way a diagnosis manifests on dark skin. This can build confidence and trust—an essential part of practicing exemplary medicine.

Skin of Color Atlas

VisualDx is committed to improving diagnosis in patients of color. We have curated an unmatched image library reflecting disease on all skin types and now we’ve added a feature to help you diagnose patients with darker skin types.

Your subscription to VisualDx includes access to our collection of pigmented skin images as well as our overall 45,000 medical image library and technology platform to aid in diagnosis, improve treatment decisions, and engage your patients.

What’s the Diagnosis Quiz

A 38-year-old man visited his doctor for a pruritic rash that developed on his feet over the last week. He frequently worked out and showered in a gym before going to work. On examination, fine, powdery, scaly plaques were seen on his soles and insteps. He otherwise appeared well and had no systemic symptoms.
