The article discusses research being done on the reliability of neurological examination using telemedicine. Details of the methodology used in the study are provided. The reliability of telemedicine examination results ranged from fair to very good. Examination using telemedicine by a doctor experienced in dealing with patients with neurological problems is at least as good as an examination by a doctor not experienced in dealing with patients with neurological complaints.
