New from VisualDX: Competitive Quiz Feature

From the VisualDx Blog:
New VisualDx Mobile Quiz for iOS
VisualDx Quiz for the iPhone and iPad tests your knowledge of visual presentations of disease. Select a specialty area such as Infectious Disease, Dermatology or Pediatrics, or select “All Specialties” to begin. For each question, VisualDx Quiz shows you an image, asks you to identify the correct diagnosis from a multiple-choice list, and tracks your score. Practice on your own, or play competitively against colleagues, with scores posted to iOS Apple Game Center leaderboards. Quiz histories are stored privately on your mobile device, allowing you to review diagnoses you missed. Look up diseases in VisualDx to see more images and access expert information on diagnosis and management. More info

To play, just update or download your VisualDx app, or stop by the reference desk & take it for a spin on one of our Matas iPads.

VisualDx is a dermatology resource + mobile app oriented for problem solving: search by symptoms, visual clues and other patient factors, by diagnosis, or by medication. VisualDx clinical decision support provides instant access to concise disease information and high-quality medical images to assist in diagnosis, to direct testing, and to guide management and therapy decisions.
