Tablet computers acceptable to read EEG results

A study by physicians at Mayo Clinic's campus in Arizona, presented at the 2013 American Academy of Neurology conference in San Diego, has determined that tablet computers can be used to review EEG results remotely. Matthew T. Hoerth, M.D., neurologist at Mayo Clinic, explains how "despite the marginally smaller screen size, the ease of use, accessibility and reliability make the tablet a viable option for its integration into the tele-EEG practice." This study further shows how telemedicine continues to benefit people in rural areas who may not have access to subspecialist care.
