The Biomedical Library is having a trial on VisualDX until the end of September.
VisualDx is a differential diagnosis tool, focusing on improving diagnostic accuracy through visualization of diseases. It is also an educational resource for health sciences students and residents and can be used as a point-of-care reference. The database covers over 2,700 pediatric and adult conditions with almost 40,000 images, and is an appropriate application for the fields of dermatology, emergency medicine, internal medicine, family medicine, and pediatrics. The tool supports limiting by symptoms/signs, location, patient age, sex, and more after the initial search. The VisualDx mobile app is available on iOS and Android. From the homepage, scroll down and click on "Get the Mobile App" to register for a personal account to be used on mobile device. Then download the app in the App store.
