DermExpert™ Built for Equity in Skin of Color
In 2017, VisualDx released the AI-enabled feature, DermExpert, which helps non-specialists learn to make better clinical decisions by taking a photo of their patient’s skin. DermExpert employs machine learning models that have been trained, from the beginning, on a range of images from very dark skin to light skin, to all skin tones in between. This ensures that every patient, no matter their skin color, will experience the same quality performance from the DermExpert app.
Brian Browne, MD, an emergency medicine physician at the University of Maryland, shared his experience using DermExpert with a patient of color. “She loved how this app worked,” said Dr. Browne. He was pleased to be able to accurately diagnose and treat her lobular capillary hemangioma.
