iTriage Turns Your Smart Phone Into A Medical Diagnosis Tool

Android/iOS: iTriage puts the content of the iTriage medical information web site on your smartphone. You can search through symptoms, learn more about a wide variety of medical conditions, and more.

From the initial interface you can search for a doctor or a location to receive various medical treatments, look up symptoms, read more about specific diseases, and learn more about the procedures used to treat them. Browsing through the symptoms list displays possible causes of each symptom. Clicking on the injury or disease process itself lists a description, additional symptoms, tests that can be conducted to determine if the suggested disease or injury is the culprit, available treatment, as well as images and videos of the disease or injury.

iTriage is obviously not a replacement for a consultation with your physician or a trip to the emergency room, but it is a well-organised and portable index of thousands of symptoms and their causes. Visit the link below for more information or search for iTriage in the iTunes App Store or the Android Market to grab a copy for your phone.
