In a prospective clinical study, TytoCare exam data was evaluated and compared to exams captured by FDA-cleared, stand-alone digital examination devices (digital otoscope and stethoscope). Ear images and heart and lung sounds from 50 pediatric patients were acquired using Tyto and a standard-of-care digital otoscope and stethoscope. The data was loaded onto a secure server and reviewed by eight physicians (randomized and blinded). Analysis of the data showed that the images and sounds acquired using the Tyto device not only were sufficient for diagnosis but were in fact superior to those acquired through the standard-of-care digital devices.
The study was recently accepted for publication in the Journal of Telemedicine and eHealth.
