How do I share a case from my desktop or laptop?

To share a case from your desktop or laptop, you’ll first need to login to the Figure 1 web app.

Once you’re logged in, click on Share a case in the top right corner of the home screen. Tap Share a case at the top of the next screen to share an image or text-based case.

Tap Page a Specialist to page specialists around the world when you have a time-sensitive question in need of a quick response.

Drag and drop a file or browse your computer library to select images. You can repeat this step to select multiple images to add to your case.

Click the pencil on the image to edit it using the draw, crop, and face-blocking tools. Click Done to keep your changes or Cancel to revert your edits.

Enter your descriptive case title and summary in the fields at the right of the screen. Complete summaries include relevant clinical information such as history, symptoms, possible treatment, or differential diagnoses. Select a case status and choose a label for your case. Categorize your case by specialty and subspecialty so that your peers can find it.

Click Share a case to post your case to Figure 1. If you wish to use a consent form, you may access a sample form here.

Our team of moderators will review your case, and you will receive a notification when your case has been approved.

If your case is not accepted, you will receive an email explaining why and you will have an opportunity to revise and resubmit your case.

If you don’t have time to complete your post, go to the first screen where you uploaded your image and case title and tap Save as draft. You can find your draft in your Drafts folder and submit it at a later time.
