Anomaly scans and ready hands: Day 3 in Sudan

Day Three of the Outreach Program in Sudan had an exciting start! After a lecture on placental assessment by Prof. Hisham Mirghani, the trainees broke off into their teams. Outreach Trainer Yasmin Casmod’s group identified two anomaly scans (one which was oligohydramnios with abnormally large eyes and heart), which had to be immediately consulted over to Dr Sami Mahmoud to oversee and recommend follow up accordingly.

The trainees in Dr Reem Abu-Rustum’s group today were completely enthusiastic on scanning and encouraged her to show them new techniques even beyond the practical session.
