VisualDx Trial

The library has subscribed to a trial of VisualDX, a diagnostic tool that includes 22,000 images, along with clinical information about 11,000 different diagnoses.  The images from VisualDX allow practitioners to identify skin patterns for diseases, drug side effects, child abuse, terrorism, pressure ulcers and MRSA, among others.  Users can limit images by age group, gender, body part  and have the option for viewing the condition in patients with fair or dark skin.  Atypical and phasing presentations are also included in diagnostic searches. Additionally, VisualDx is integrated into UpToDate so that VisualDx image results show up in UpToDate searches and apps are available for download for Apple and Droid devices.

This trial subscription will be available to Children’s Hospital Employees from now until September 11, 2011.
