Examples:

  • 67y woman with fever

  • 44y man after fall

Examples:

  • CT, Brain

History

Get the user's attention

History is the first thing the users see. Be more descriptive and give information about the patient's medical history, etc.

Images

The art of good images

Upload DICOM images that are representative to the pathology you are describing. You can upload as many as 6 images per chapter and a total of 30 images per case. The app will automatically anonymize the DICOM files before they are saved to your case.

 

Pro Tip:

The app will automatically create a case thumbnail from the first image you upload. You can always change this thumbnail from the media tab.
