Sonography Camp at Melghat

December 27, 2017 divider image

Our first Ultra Sonography camp was held on 18th November at Mahatma Gandhi Tribal Hospital, Karmagram, Utavali, Melghat. Radiologists from Deptt. of  Radiodiagnosis, GMC, Nagpur  included Rotary Ann Dr Aarti Anand, Rotary Ann Dr Ashwini Umredkar and Dr Harsha Sahu rendered their services and expertise. The response  was overwhelming, with more than 100 patients turning up for this camp and a total of 78 pregnancy and 7 abdominal sonographies being done. The district administration and public health departments of Amravati district have highly appreciated the initiative of Rotary Club of Nagpur in holding this camp.

 

Dr. Ashish Satav’s crusade to get sonography facility at Melghat started when a profusely bleeding lady had to be taken 160 KM far, to get Sonography on her. Its effect on Dr. Satav was profound.  Already working on maternal and child health in Melghat’s Korku tribal community, he now resolved to bring the USG facility to Melghat’s rural population. Just when he was losing hope of having his dream fulfilled, the Rotary Club of Nagpur came to his help.
