GenomeDx Biosciences announced the launch of UroSketch 3D, an application which provides a three-dimensional model of the prostate, bladder, and surrounding organs for use by urologists during patient consults. 

UroSketch 3D consists of preset 3D model views which allow a physician to zoom in on an image and show the image in 360-degree rotation. The application also provides illustrations of different tumor stages and other features pertaining to the prostate. In each view of the app, physicians can use a draw and/or highlighter function to mark up images and then email or print out a personalized PDF for patients to take home. 

The PDF will include a header with physician name, date stamp and any contact details that the physician provides upon download of the app. Consult sessions are listed on the home screen by time and erased at the end of each day to ensure privacy. Physicians may create master sketches, which are not erased and can be used as templates for new sessions.

The application is now available for download and works with and iPad and iPad mini using the iOS 6 software.
