VisualDx is a clinical decision support tool, which you can use to build a diagnosis based on a patient's clinical findings.

You can:

  • Build up diagnoses by searching for various symptoms, and choose the patient's characteristics (age and gender).
  • Search for physical effects that may present as a result from taking certain medications. 
  • Read synopses of diseases and conditions, along with what to look for, differential diagnoses, and best tests to diagnose a certain disease or condition.
