ROCHESTER, NY, – Oct. 11, 2013 – Logical Images announced today that VisualDx, the nation’s only widely used diagnostic decision support tool, was honored by the Pride Institute for its state-of-the-art, computer-assisted diagnostic support for dentists.
The Pride Institute, the nation’s leading dental consulting practice, named Lexicomp Online for Dentistry featuring VisualDx Oral as one of its 2013 “Best of Class” Technology Award winners. The Institute launched its “Best of Class” Technology awards in 2009 as an “unbiased nonprofit initiative that, in conjunction with the leading technology experts in the field, selects annually the most important technologies in the industry.”
Lexicomp Online for Dentistry featuring VisualDx Oral gives dental professionals access to a comprehensive dental-specific pharmacology information from core Lexicomp databases and to VisualDx Oral, a state-of-the-art, computer-assisted diagnosis tool.
“We are honored and pleased to have this important recognition for Lexicomp Online for Dentistry featuring VisualDx Oral,” said Art Papier, MD, CEO of Logical Images, the creator of VisualDx. “VisualDx includes the world’s best collection of peer-reviewed medical images, and its ability to quickly assist medical professionals in reaching accurate diagnoses makes it a vital tool for a wide range of medical professionals.”
During appointments, dental professionals can enter a patient’s symptoms and health history into the VisualDx “differential builder.” Based on the information entered, Lexicomp Online for Dentistry featuring VisualDx Oral quickly delivers a highly specific list of potential diagnoses, a series of medical images against which to match the patient’s current conditions and the recommended treatments. Dentists can then work through the list to arrive at the best diagnosis, explain the process to the patient and decide on the right treatment for each patient, which allows for a deeper level of understanding.
In addition to providing dentists with diagnostic assistance through Lexicomp Online for Dentistry, VisualDx is available to other medical professionals as an online and mobile app that works with the iPhone, Android and iPad.
