Lab Template

Consider adding appropriate labs and imaging to your scenario.  The template provides a way to display labs for your learners. In addition, consider adding photos of physical findings,  X rays, US imaging, CT scans or EKG tracings. We have a library of commonly used images or we can use a deidentified image that you provide for your scenario.
