About Skinsight

Skinsight is dedicated to providing quality health information to consumers via the web. At Skinsight you have access to some of the best medical images in the world. We believe images combined with expert-written knowledge will help you better identify and understand a health concern than by simply using words. Health care is undergoing a revolution as patients have access to more and more information on the Internet. Literally millions of pages are searchable in under a second. What is the right page out of that million? What is the right image that will help you understand? At VisualDx, we are focused on these questions and supporting better health through better knowledge.
