VisualDX is diagnostic tool that includes 25,000 images, along with clinical information for more than a thousand 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.
