Dr. F. Hampton Roy Introduces New Tool for Differential Diagnosis


Dr. Hampton Roy with Dr. Barrett HaikMonday, October 20, 2008 -- This week, the Hamilton Eye Institute enjoyed a visit from F. Hampton Roy, MD, FACS, from Little Rock, AR. Dr. Roy introduced our physicians, fellows, and residents to the Medflow DDS database web site, an extensive online tool for medical use. The Medflow DDS site provides a new, convenient, and comprehensive method for physicians to explore options for differential diagnosis. During his lecture, Dr. Roy demonstrated how to use the database; with it, one can enter a symptom in a search box and receive a list of possible causes along with links to abstracts and other resources. Dr. Roy is an accomplished ophthalmologist and prolific writer. Full-text versions of two of his books are available on our web site, thanks to his generous permission.
