VisualDx is a visual diagnostic decision support tool that allows clinicians to enter a patient’s symptoms and compare visual findings to one of the largest databases of medical digital images in the world. Now users can take VisualDx with them on the go with the VisualDx Mobile App for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
With VisualDx Mobile, clinicians can access a wealth of information at the point of care. The app provides differential diagnoses as patients’ symptoms and signs are entered and allows clinicians to validate diagnoses using images of disease presentation in a variety of disease stages and skin types. VisualDx Mobile is especially useful in identifying emerging infectious diseases, bioterrorism and radiation-related illnesses, and medication-induced diseases.
To download VisualDx Mobile, visit the VisualDx homepage from a UCLA computer or a computer with off-campus access and click on the link labeled “Get VisualDx free for your iPhone and iPad.” After entering your contact information, you will receive an email with instructions about how to download the app. Once you have downloaded the app, you may access updates from the iTunes Store for free.
