Developed by plastic surgeons Dr John Dickson and Dr Alex Varey, this app provides medical students and junior doctors with a set of pictorial based differential diagnoses for 11 common problems experienced in the Emergency Department. The pictorial based system can be viewed with or without the labels to facilitate self testing and provides a robust framework for remembering the various causes for a presenting complaint.

Student BMJ review of iPhone version (March 2011):
"PicturingED aims to help medical students and doctors learn the causes of common emergency medical presentations. The app works on the concept of “visual memory,” – clear associative images are more easily remembered than written information alone. Rather than giving a list of causes to be memorised in rote fashion, the app presens differentials as pictures allowing a more natural and more successful learning technique. The images are clear, vivid and more memorable than a bland written list of differentials."
