PoopMD app can scan liver disease

A rare disorder that accounts for nearly half of paediatric end-stage liver disease in the US.

According to a study, researchers from the Johns Hopkins Children’s Centre reported they have verified the ability of the free app, called PoopMD.

Twenty-seven of the pictures were determined to be of normal stool, and seven were deemed bile deficient, signalling high risk for BA.

The app never identified a normal stool as pale, a type of false positive that could cause unnecessary anxiety for a parent or other app user,” Mogul said.
