VisualDX Trial Access

08/06/09  Portland, OR

The OHSU Library is pleased to announce a trial subscription to VisualDx from Logical Images, available through August 28th,  2009.

 

VisualDx is visual clinical diagnostic tool that provides pictures and text information for common diseases and conditions. 

VisualDX allows the user to perform rapid visual and iconic searches of visible patient clues to enhance learning and diagnostic processes. Including over 16,000 medical images, the system visually presents disease variations by skin type, age, or passage of time, unlike books or atlases that nearly always depict classic or severe cases on fair-skinned individuals. It differentiates common flu-like conditions from those possibly caused by a rare and unusual event, such as a bioterrorism act, as well as from conditions such as avian influenza, SARS, or other emerging infectious diseases.

 

Problem oriented by design, VisualDx visual diagnostic decision support system helps clinicians dynamically build a customized and patient-relevant pictorial differential diagnosis in seconds, drawn from thousands of medical images revealing variations in presentation between - as well as within - diseases.

 

VisualDX links health care professionals to medical images and information prepared by physician scholars – all available on site at the point of care (integration with the Epic electronic medical record is available).
