The Social Network Where Doctors Swap Gross Pics of Patients

Figure 1 is a photo sharing app for health care professionals. According to this Wired article, users post because they are stumped and looking for a 2nd, 3rd, 4th, nth opinion. Or because they want to stump members of their community with little diagnostic quizzes. The app’s user base just surpassed 500,000 users last week. But could Figure 1 improve diagnostics, care, and treatment for non-users everywhere?
