FACE2GENE APP FOR FACIAL RECOGNITION OF FASD APP  ARTICLE       

Available at Apple Appstore by physicians only
Dr. Rahman, who is director of genetic medicine at the Munroe-Meyer Institute at the University of Nebraska Medical Center and an expert in FASD, worked with experts at FDNA, Inc., a Boston-based biotechnology company, on training a system they developed to recognize the alcohol-related disorder. There are subtle differences seen in persons affected by ARND that are difficult for a person to detect but more readily picked up by computer algorithms, he said. The findings were recently published in the November 2017 issue of Pediatrics, the official journal of the American Academy of Pediatrics.The app is just another useful tool for clinicians as they evaluate the whole person and only indicates the likelihood of a genetic abnormality that should be taken in context with other indicators of a particular diagnosis, he said.
