Spent most of the morning hanging out with Dr. Abuya, which was nice. He's very interested in improving the system for CXRs and supporting AMPATH. I think that we're going to work with him on a small pamphlet describing basic CXR skills, which should be a good project. I think that he's taking his academic career very seriously - I learned today that he is a Co-PI on a study measuring renal function in HIV patients that looks like it's very well designed and executed.
Saw a few images from one of the Eldoret MRI scanners today and for heads they are really quite good. One of the things that makes MR much more important now is that MTRH has a neurosurgeon. He did a fellowship in neurosurgical oncology and spine and has been removing brain tumors, which is really amazing considering just two years ago if you were an idiot physician who travelled to Kenya with persistent headaches and a subdural hematoma you had to be airlifted to Nairobi just for a burr hole. They also have a weekly multidisciplinary conference with radiology, neurosurgery, and pathology. It didn't happen this week, but I'm looking forward to next Thursday. Oh, and they are begging for someone to do cerebral angiograms for pre-procedure planning.
That's about it for today. I have a bunch of work to do today, so I'm thinking that I will stay at IU house this weekend. Here are a few dog pics to brighten your day :-)
