With “mobile” otoscopy, pediatricians are able to create a visual history of the middle ear and parents can save time by allowing ear infections to be diagnosed and treated remotely. CellScope Oto, the ear exam product showcased at TEDMED, has a special case that features a protruding head, which is attached over the regular iPhone. This enables physicians to examine the ear using the iPhone camera and LED, and the images can be saved and analyzed using the Cellscope app, according to the Smartphone Physical website.
