  1. Very glad to have this free trial – we use this app daily in the Cancer Center as nurse practitioners.

  2. Thanks for the trial of Visual Dx. Very useful for primary care for dermatologic differenital diagnoses and excellent for trainees and students. A great add to UTD as well. Plus it’s got a good app. Seems like a real win.

  3. Seems like a valuable resource, however, website had qwerks that prevented a real trial. After I registered on the website I was unable to use the website or mobile app without giving my credit card info and signing up for a subscription. I’m not sure if there was supposed to be a product key or a way for us to trial the software?

    1. Hi Ian! I hope you figured out how to use the trial! If you didn’t have a chance to use VisualDX during the trial period, you can certainly try it out now because Lane has now licensed it for use. Check out our recent blog post about it to learn how to get started: And if you are still having trouble with it, feel free to shoot us an email at laneaskus[at]stanford[dot]edu, and we’d be happy to help you troubleshoot!
