  • A group of researchers has created a new way to use Apple’s iPhone, the latest iteration of which is now for sale, to diagnose strokes.
  • Scientists at Penn State University have teamed up with Houston Methodist Hospital to identify the debilitating medical episodes based on abnormalities in a person’s speech and facial movements detectable with the iconic smartphone.
  • The model had a 79% accuracy rate after being tested on more than 80 patients who had experienced stroke symptoms at Houston Methodist, roughly the same accuracy rate as emergency room doctors.
