VisualDx is an online resource that helps students improve pattern recognition in dermatology and other curriculum areas such as infectious disease, international travel, drug eruptions, ophthalmology, oral medicine, STDs, acute pulmonary infections, etc. VisualDx builds a patient-specific pictorial differential diagnosis based on the patient's findings. The student can compare diseases side by side and then drill down to see the range in presentation within each disease in the differential. (light skin, dark skin, early/late stage, unusual presentations, severe cases, etc.) Handbook length text on each disease also is included to help guide diagnostic decision making and learn more about appropriate tests and treatment. Content: Images, text, clinical information tools.
