Use your iPhone to Stay Informed

I don’t have an iPhone, but I am seriously considering getting one just because the apps are so darn cool. Here are few cancer related apps that I thought you might find interesting and if I missed any, please share:

TouchOut™ Cancer
TouchOut™ Cancer is a new way to stay informed with cancer information, bringing cancer news, knowledge and awareness to people each and every day. Organizations which will be contributing content include: Cancer Schmancer, The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society and I’m Too Young For This Cancer Foundation with more organization announcements forthcoming.

Celebrities such as Fran Drescher, Matisyahu, Olympic Gold Medalist Bryan Clay and more will provide upcoming celebrity updates. The free app will include prevention tips, new and updated clinical trials, stories of hope, information about cancer services and celebrity audio and video messages.

Heme Calc
For folks who want to do their own research, this free hematology app focuses on patients with benign or malignant hematologic disease. It includes calculators to determine Deep Vein Thrombosis Pre-test Probability, Bone Marrow Involvement in Hodgkin's Disease, Body Surface Area and Chemotherapy dosing, Febrile Neutropenia MASCC Risk Score, Epo/GCSF Response in Myelodysplastic Syndrome, Heparin Induced Thrombocytopenia (HIT) Score, Multiple Myeloma International Staging System and more.

Blausen Cancer Atlas
Provides a comprehensive set of cancer-related 3D animations, detailing 49 conditions and procedures. Whether cancer specialist, general practitioner, student or consumer, this is an ideal resource for communicating core concepts, right in the palm of your hand and right at point of care. Derived from the Blausen Medical award winning, world's largest medical animation library, the animations (each approximately 1-2 minutes in length) serve as an ideal starting point for patient understanding.
