Logical Images announced the release of VisualDx 5.04, a software that helps clinicians make faster and more accurate diagnoses of visually identifiable conditions.

Rochester, NY, August 04, 2007 --( Logical Images, a developer of software that helps clinicians make faster and more accurate diagnoses of visually identifiable conditions, today announced the release of VisualDx 5.04. This is the company's second release of the year showing a dedication to providing clinicians the most current and valuable information applicable to their day-to-day patient care. VisualDx 5.04 visual clinical decision support software introduces the Cellulitis DDX module and additional system functionality with its "Switch Module" feature. These new additions will enhance the already extensive system now offering 22 discrete modules covering the full life spectrum with more than 800 diagnoses and nearly 15,000 unique images.

"With 15-20% of patients misdiagnosed with soft tissue infections (cellulitis) driving unnecessary hospital admissions and costs, clinicians need access to data that assists in clearly identifying unusual or easily misdiagnosed conditions." said Dr. Art Papier, Chief Scientific Officer of Logical Images. VisualDx 5.04 focuses a full module on the diagnosis of soft tissue infections giving clinicians readily available clinical information and visual representation of the disease. The Cellulitis DDx module has a unique and simple interface that walks you through a few key questions and with the click of a button returns your relevant differential. Now with the added switch module capability, the system lets users toggle between modules while preserving captured patient findings for quick comparison of diagnoses or to simply move into another module.

By merging medical imaging with clinical information VisualDx provides a technologically advanced approach to point-of-care decision making and disease recognition and diagnosis. With VisualDx, the methodology for identifying matching diagnoses which fit clinicians' input has been visually enhanced - leading to quicker recognition of disease matches.

Used in over 400 locations in 32 states, VisualDx represents a comprehensive resource for visually identifiable diseases. The strength of VisualDx lies in the intuitive manner in which it organizes and presents data, allowing doctors to supplement their experience with a vast database of easily accessible clinical information. This year Logical Images is looking at continued growth for the VisualDx database with works in progress including External Eye/Slit Lamp, Child Abuse, and Burns Bites & Stings.
