Image-based global networking tool connects physicians from all over the world.

Figure 1 is an online global network in which healthcare practitioners, including radiologists, can share medical cases and receive feedback in real time. Using the smartphone app or web browser version, practitioners upload an image, write a caption and tag it with a category. Healthcare providers often post images of unusual cases they need help identifying or classic presentations of a disease. After the image is reviewed by Figure 1’s moderator team, the image and caption are available for questions, comments and feedback from the medical community around the world.
