Medical Student Uses VisualDx to Search Best Diagnostic Tests for Patient

osteomyelitis_123655.jpgArianna Y. a medical student at Northwestern shares how she used VisualDx to search for testing information about her patient's diagnosis.

"A patient presented with a diabetic foot ulcer with concern for osteomyelitis. I referred to VisualDx to order the best tests to order to evaluate for osteomyelitis. Through this page, MRI was identified as the most sensitive imaging modality for osteomyelitis. The VisualDx page guided the workup as well as the management of our patient."
