New Resource Available: VisualDX!

VisualDx is a point-of-care decision support system used to diagnose visually presenting conditions.  The images on VisualDx capture the variations of disease presentations by age, skin type, body location, and severity.  You can search by diagnosis, medication, or use the Differential Builder to create a diagnosis from visual signs and symptoms, medical history, occupational type, travel history, and more.
