Video quality using outpatient smartphone videos in epilepsy

Takeaway

  • Smartphone video (SV) quality is acceptable for clinical interpretation in most patients with paroxysmal neurologic events.

Why this matters

  • Smartphones provide an opportunity for objective information for disease identification; however, video quality can be affected by various factors, leading researchers to investigate their adequacy for clinical recommendations in outpatient settings.

  • Utilization of patient SV may reduce missed appointments and encourage treatment adherence in patients, particularly in those ‘hard to reach’ due to location, physical or cognitive disability, and can reduce infection risk, in light of the current COVID pandemic.
