iPhone app allows Peyronie's patients to track deformity

Seattle-A mobile diagnostic iPhone app called Peyronie's Disease Diagnostic Tool has been developed by the Seattle App Lab. Developed for the University of Washington's urology department, the app allows patients to track penile deformity by auto-photography transmitted to their physicians. By allowing men to characterize the deformity at home, the app may avoid the need for costly and invasive tests, according to Seattle App Lab. Slated for release in August, the app will be available in the Apple Store for free iPhone and iPad downloads.
