The Library Needs Your Feedback!

The Library is looking at several new products and needs your feedback!

VisualDX– This diagnostic tool includes 22,000 images and information on 11,000 diagnoses. You can limit images by age group, gender, body part and have the option for viewing the condition in patients with fair or dark skin. The differential diagnosis prompts for information about pediatric/adult skin, drug reactions, eye/oral/pulmonary symptoms along with lesion type, body location and key findings. VisualDX is integrated into UpToDate and mobile apps for Apple and Droid devices. You cannot use them in a Powerpoint presentation, however. The trial subscription ends Sept. 10, 2011. The link to evaluate this product is:
