Robert L. Quillin, a pediatrician in Webster, Tex., has used CellScope’s Oto for several months during the device’s testing period. Shaped like a traditional otoscope, it fits over the phone’s camera, has a plastic tip that is inserted in the patient’s ear, and uses the phone’s camera to take photos or video of the ear canal and eardrum. Dr. Quillin can show the image on the phone directly to the patient — or to medical students, to educate them about ear infections. Ultimately, he said, a physician or nurse practitioner must interpret the image, make a diagnosis and prescribe any necessary treatment. “It’s a great tool for teaching parents and young doctors,” he said.
