The flexibility and ubiquity of smartphones has made them a natural platform for app developers targeting surgeons – among the most mobile of physicians. In this survey, iMedicalApps looks at apps currently available for surgeons.
In this comprehensive review, iMedicalApps compares the free versions of the six of the best-known medical reference apps for the iPhone/iPod touch/iPad: Epocrates, Lexi-Comp, MedScape, Micromedex, Pepid, and Skyscape.
This is a review of 3 Anatomy Apps developed by Modality, but from the following textbooks: Clemente’s, Rohen’s, and Moore’s. We comment on how these applications could take advantage of the iPad’s screen size and resolution and be used to visually educate patients on specific anatomic pathologies.
