Scope Podcast: Using Technology to Diagnose Stroke Victims
The sooner a specialist can see a stroke victim makes a huge difference
in the quality of their recovery. Telestroke is a form of telemedicine
that gives patients in rural areas better access to those specialists.
We asked Dr. David Renner, a neurologist at the University of Utah Hospital
who also serves patients at St. John’s Medical Center in Jackson
Wyoming, how he uses telestroke technology, and what he looks for when
performing a stroke diagnosis.
