VisualDxHealth MyDiseaseFinder (Online Dx Tool)

I’ve been rethinking my previous post on “symptom-based search”, and thinking that I’ve been sloppy with my language. Some of these tools include a search component (sometimes searching proprietary content, sometimes searching the Web, sometimes searching select Web sites), but I think categorizing them as “search” tools was a mistake. From now on, I’ll refer to these as online Dx tools.

Graphically select the part of the body:

…and click Go:

This appears to be most useful in identifying dermatological conditions.
