in Medical (E)

[] Newton, Massachusetts - The Tumorpedia / Bonetumor team announces the launch of Tumorpedia, a suite of mobile medical reference applications designed for healthcare providers and students. The Tumorpedia mobile applications deliver comprehensive, authoritative, and up-to-date information on the evaluation, diagnosis and treatment of bone and soft tissue tumors.

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 is available now in the Apple App store.

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.

The Tumorpedia applications allow healthcare providers rapid mobile access to the content from Bonetumor, the web's most comprehensive medical information site covering all aspects of benign and malignant bone and soft tissue tumors. The website Bonetumor has been ranked #1 on Google since its inception in 1996.

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," explains Dr. Henry DeGroot, principal content author of the applications.

It took DeGroot and his team more than five hundred hours of work to create and organize the content presented in Tumorpedia. Their goal was to make sure the app's information was accurate, evidence-based, comprehensive and easy to access in a clinical setting or at the point of care.
