Dr. Gordon Johnson travels to India and Haiti regularly and finds point-of-care ultrasound to be essential for seeing his patients in resource limited settings. Dr. Johnson had his share of scanning and training with iViz during his most recent trip to India on December 2015, and reports back to us:
“During my trip to India I joined the professors and residents on rounds on the medical wards in two public hospitals in Kolkata India. The staff was really excited to see this technology, many had ultrasound experience but none had seen such a capable device. We performed cardiac, lung and abdominal ultrasounds on patients on the wards, demonstrating the ability to easily identify pleural and pericardial effusions as well as quickly assess cardiac function. I also gave a hands on demonstration to the cardiac anesthesia residents and faculty. Cardiac images were fantastic!”
Dr. Gordon Johnson is an internist/hospitalist in Portland, Oregon at Legacy Emanuel Hospital and Health Center and Legacy Good Samaritan Hospital and Health Center. He received his medical degree from University of Washington School of Medicine and has been in practice for 21 years.
