A Little Closer to that Medical Tricorder

In Belfast, North Ireland, scientist have developed an app for iPhones and iPads that help train doctors to read X-rays. The program presents doctors with a selection of X-rays. Through the app they submit their diagnoses which are then checked. The goal is to fine tune a doctor’s skills through immediate feedback that is “personalized” to work on any weaknesses demonstrated in the doctor’s responses.
