Marfan foundation launches comprehensive diagnosis app for physicians

The app is based on the 2010 Revised Ghent Nosology for Marfan Syndrome — The full BMJ paper can be found here. What I like about the Marfan DX app is how comprehensive the app is for health professionals. The app enables you to do specific calculations at bedside with the patient, such as the Systemic Calculator. The really cool part of the Systemic Calculator is that you can click the “info” button for specific physical exam findings — such as “Hindfoot Deformity” — and you get a detailed description of what you’re looking for (referenced in the picture below).
