App Review: Diagnosaurus DDx – Differential Diagnosis Reference App

By Ravish Amin

The right diagnosis requires first sorting and organizing differentials of a patient’s condition based on clues obtained from the patient history and physical exam.

While on the wards or while reviewing for exams, med students must emphasize the importance of having a differential as a patient case is presented. The differential is used to narrow the potential diagnosis and what develops is a list of possible treatments for the patient.

The Diagnosaurus app has over 1,000 differential diagnoses organized for the most common diseases, systems, and body parts.

The search feature works well because most vocabulary in the app matches the conditions users are referring to.

  1. The App features a colorful layout with pictures of flowers that they sell. On the main page you will find handy features like one button “Call us”, “Directions” that will open up Google Maps or Google Earth, and “Tell a Friend” that will open up Social Media Tabs of Share by Email, Facebook, Twitter or by SMS.
