Great opportunity--thanks for the info!
Ultrasound in my opinion, I am in Nigeria, still remains first choice in acute pelvic conditions in females, apart from being radiation free,, it is portable, give real time image and available. CT examination is a luxury in Nigeria, we have less than 50 CT machines in a country of over 120 Million, so CT is reserved for the very serious cases. In well trained hands, Pelvic Uss, (B, Doppler) is the first choice
