Visual DX 

BSMS has taken out a subscription to a new resource called Visual DX. It is widely used in the US, but it is still relatively new to the UK and we are the first UK medical school to take it on. 

You can use Visual DX to build a differential diagnosis, to confirm a diagnosis, to help with patient engagement, through the use of patient information and being able to show patients more visual information and there is also therapy information on most of the cases.

To access Visual Dx, simply go to the Online Resources A-Z list on Studentcentral or click here and enter your Athens password. For anyone without an Athens password, you can sign up here:

For a demonstration of the site, please contact Lisa Mclaren via
