Posted on October 3rd, 2012 by

The study, from researchers at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, was the first to test the effectiveness of smartphone teleradiology applications in a real-world telestroke network. "Smartphones are ubiquitous, they are everywhere," Bart Demaerschalk, MD, professor of neurology, and medical director of Mayo Clinic Telestroke, said in a release.
