We’ve witnessed how telemedicine can help combat the pandemic impact on life profoundly, with a more digitalized way of living emerging as the norm and online-based education experiencing substantial growth.

SonoScape has been keeping all lines of businesses running to resume work and production. From June 17th to June 19th, SonoScape has conducted an online live webinar, led by one of the most recognized ultrasound doctors in Latin America, Dr. Daniel Cafici.

The live streaming provided all access points for doctors and students to pick the brain of a leading expert of the caliber through Facebook, with or without registration.

Over 1,200 ultrasound doctors and students joined the live stream to hear from the author of "Ultrasonography in Obstetrics and Prenatal Diagnosis” which is a widely used textbook in LatAM, three days in a row. The recorded video was then visited by more than 15,000 viewers on Facebook and received extensive positive feedback.

Key takeaway messages:

  1. Parameter settings and control according to ISUOG standards

  2. Techniques to investigate the main exam sections (uterine arteries, umbilical artery, middle cerebral artery, venous ductus)

  3. Main applications of obstetrical Doppler for pre-eclampsia screening and Intrauterine growth restriction

By conducting video training like this, doctors at different locations can refresh their skills and learn about advanced obstetric ultrasound knowledge from the best without traveling, clearing away the gathering in training centers, thus controlling virus transmission.

Inevitably, the temporary pause that the pandemic has brought to the world will lead to structural changes to industries and reflections that healthcare, technology, and the natural world must coexist in a sustainable way. The emerging mechanisms will make specialist health care resources available to individuals and remote areas thus improve the overall treatment level.
