Project : Ultrasound Uganda

Description: We have developed and implemented a combined training and research program in point of care ultrasound focused on pediatric patients in collaboration with Mbale Regional Referral Hospital, the Mbale Clinical Research Institute and ATLAS international. To date, 14 clinicians have enrolled in the training program with over 300 ultrasounds completed on cardiac and lung. Research into point of care ultrasound in pediatric patients focused on sepsis, pneumonia, cerebral malaria and extra-pulmonary tuberculosis is ongoing.
