Visual Dx

VisualDx provides clinicians with images and information to assist with a successful diagnosis. Users can refine searches for conditions via various findings, including onset, patient appearance, and associated symptoms.

Recently, VisualDx has emphasized including a diverse variety of skin types. Their Skin of Color Atlas includes features to help diagnose patients with darker skin types.
