VisualDX | MCW Libraries Featured Resource
VisualDx is designed to enhance diagnostic accuracy, aid therapeutic decisions, and improve patient safety. Features include the world’s best medical image library to make timely clinical decisions.
VisualDx is committed to presenting medical images on all skin of color. patients with pigmented skin have been marginalized and faced worse outcomes than their peers with lighter skin colors. Textbooks, dermatology atlases, and other resources have traditionally underrepresented presentations of disease in people of color. Of the more than 45,000 images in the VisualDx collection, 28.5% are skin types IV, V, and VI. Use the “Dermatology Skin of Color” option to build a differential diagnosis and see dark skin images first.
