What role do cell phone videos have in diagnosing patients with epilepsy? And how could they help non-medically trained witnesses?  

  • Overview

    It may be challenging for a family member to take a video on their cell phone while a patient is having a seizure. However, they have been deemed useful in helping physicians establish a history of seizures in epileptic patients. So should clinicians consider this as a reimbursable diagnostic tool? Joined by the physician who posed this question in a recent article for the journal Neurology Clinical Practice, Dr. Andrew Wilner speaks with Dr. Selim Benbadis, Professor of Neurology and the Director of the Comprehensive Epilepsy Program at the University of South Florida.
