“We are pleased to offer this revolutionary oral lesion diagnosis tool to dental professionals”
Dental professionals utilizing Lexicomp Online™ for Dentistry, the Lexicomp dental-specific drug and clinical information solution, can now access an enhanced level of decision support through VisualDx Oral, which combines the power of a searchable medical image library of oral lesions with concise, specialist-developed clinical information.
“We are pleased to offer this revolutionary oral lesion diagnosis tool to dental professionals,” commented Dave Del Toro, Vice President and General Manger, Clinical Decision Support. “Dental professionals are now able to develop a visual differential diagnosis based on patient findings and access next steps for management and care. Having the capability to quickly and accurately identify and research common, rare, benign and malignant lesions saves the dentists time and allows Lexicomp users the opportunity to expand the level of care and treatment capability for their patients.”
Lexicomp is partnering with Rochester, NY, based Logical Images, the developer of VisualDx. “Oral mucosal problems can be relatively benign or as serious as cancer, often with overlapping symptoms and signs between the many diagnostic possibilities. We developed VisualDx Oral to assist dentists with a tool that can be searched by patient factors, not simply diagnosis. We are pleased to integrate VisualDx Oral with the wonderful content found within Lexicomp Online for Dentistry,” said Art Papier, MD, chief Executive Officer, Logical Images.
