Top 10 free iPad Medical Apps

Just in time for medical internships to begin July 1st, iMedicalApps.com ?áhas released a curated list of top 10 free iPad medical apps. Resources include AHRQ’S EPSS, MicroMedex, and MedScape. Notoriously missing is Epocrates.com. Why? Turns out they don’t even have a native app for iPad.

Check out the link for the entire list, short reviews and videos after the cut. (Users must ?álog in or create a free iMedicalApps account to view the videos, which this librarian finds highly annoying.)

Embryo app has NOLA connection

Embryo is new app for iPhone, iPod Touch and the iPad from the NLM. This app provides a collection of digital serial sections of early stage human embryos for mobile devices. Features include human fertilization videos, photo micrographs of early-stage embryo development, 2D and 3D digital images using visual stack dissections, and a pregnancy calculator.

Embryo is especially cool because LSUHSC-NO scientists were involved in it’s creation. The app is a collaborative project between the NLM, the Eunice Kennedy Shriver National Institute of Child Health & Human Development (NICHD), the Virtual Human Embryo Project at LSUHSC-NO and the National Museum of Health & MedicineÔÇÖs Human Developmental Anatomy Center.

The Virtual Human Embryo Project was developed in the early 2000′s as a collaboration between embryologist Dr. Raymond Gasser at LSUHSC and the Human Developmental Anatomy Center in Washington DC. Dr. John Cork at LSUHSC joined the project at its inception as the software developer with a special interest in 3D-reconstruction. The images generated from the earlier project provide the basis for Embryo.
