Tumorpedia is designed for physicians, surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, primary care providers, podiatrists, residents, interns, medical students, and patients as well. Tumorpedia is available for iPhone and iPad and Android mobile devices.
Tumorpedia comprises a suite of mobile applications focusing on different types of tumors. The applications released today include Tumorpedia-lite, Tumorpedia-bone, Tumorpedia-soft tissue, Tumorpedia-foot and ankle, and Tumorpedia-Espanol, designed for Spanish-language users.
Each Tumorpedia app contains information on 20 to 50 different tumors, covering the etiology, pathogenesis, clinical presentation, and examination findings, as well as the xray, MRI, and CT scan appearance of the tumor. The diagnostic features of each tumor are illustrated with hundreds of images from actual case examples. In addition, the microscopic pathology findings are described and illustrated. The app provides treatment options, outcomes information, and prognosis for each tumor.
There is no textbook in print that has the information available in this application, presented in the manner that it is. It's a great tool for orthopedic surgeons, radiologists, pathologists, podiatrists, residents and students who might be caring for patients with these tumors.
It's hard to memorize the variable presentations and diagnostic features of these tumors, which can range anywhere from minor, benign conditions to serious, aggressive cancers. Zeroing in on the right diagnosis is really essential in determining the most accurate and appropriate tests to use. Having this information readily available, right at the point of care is invaluable.
