Here are new features in VisualDx you may want to note:
DermExpert was added to the VisualDx iOS (iOS 11 or later required) app with UND’s latest license renewal. It allows you to take a picture of a skin condition with your device’s camera and then search within VisualDx for possible diagnoses. Look for the camera icon in the search box or choose Dermatology on the main screen.
Here is more information about DermExpert:
- DermExpert Case Study Demo one-minute video
- Improving Diagnosis in Medicine with Apple’s Core ML handout that describes DermExpert’s design including HIPAA compliance
- VisualDx Plus DermExpert Walkthrough handout
VisualDx is working on adding DermExpert to the Android app and hopes to make that available later this year.
Categorized Differential Results
In mid-April, VisualDx released updates to both the Apple and Android apps. A tab view of differential results now displays in the mobile apps, as well as in the desktop version. These are the category tabs that appear at the top of the differential results: Consider 1st, Consider 2nd, Emergencies, Infectious, Drug Induced, and View All. Screenshots are available here.
