Details: Created by a mobile healthcare company that uses physicians designers and engineers to build apps, Spine Decide has an "impressive collection" of material for patient education, Franko said.
Doctors can use the 3D tool to show the patient exactly what is happening in his or her spine. There are also 3D animations of various spinal procedures such as lumbar fusions as well as MRI images.
There is also an in-app purchase that allows doctors to send patient-specific information that the app collects to patients as a "digital handout."
