EM Resident Compares Radiological Images in VisualDx to Confirm Diagnosis

bursitis_123269.jpgEric F., an emergency medicine resident at the University of Maryland, explains how he compared his patient's x-ray to those in VisualDx and confirmed his diagnosis.

"82 yo M with a mechanical fall.  Fell on right knee.  Got XR which showed swelling anterior to the patella.  Went on visual dx which showed an identical XR showing prepatellar bursitis."
