Submitted Questions

Is it possible for me to record a video from my patients at office and consult with MDS professionals?

"Thank you for the question. What you describe is usually referred to as 'asynchronous video consultation' and some pilot studies and programs do exist to evaluate this particular telemedicine modality, usually in digitally underserved areas with scarce availability of broadband internet access. Outside of such established, formally IRB reviewed and approved pilot studies, the MDS Telemedicine Study Group does not generally provide such consultations at the present time. However, it is common practice that colleagues in the global movement disorder community informally share video recordings of their patient with expert colleagues for 2nd opinion."
