On March 22nd, 2019 Specialists Medical Officers, Registrars and House Officers from the Department of Obstetrics and Gynaecology were invited to attend a presentation and demonstration session of the Sun Bright Portable Ultrasound Scanner, the newest piece of equipment procured for the department. Mr. Ricardo Mohammed, Representative for Daylight Medical Limited was on hand to explain, demonstrate and field questions about the capabilities and functions of the scanner.

Dr. Colin Jaggernauth, Head of Department Obstetrics and Gynaecology indicated that this Ultrasound Unit would be utilized on the Labour Ward, Antenatal Ward and the Clinics to aid in making diagnoses faster and improve the level of care offered to our patients. These machines would also be used in the peripheral centres (Couva District Health Facility, Marabella Health Centre and Princes Town District Health Facility) where the SPOG Clinics (Specialist Peripheral Obstetric and Gynaecological) are conducted; to perform ultrasounds, diagnosing patients on the spot instead of having a delay with transferring patients into the hospital for ultrasounds.
