Tenwek and Diospi-Suyana Hospitals
Tenwek Hospital - Bomet, Kenya
Tenwek Hospital is a mission hospital in Bomet, Kenya, serving a rural population of over 600,000 people since 1935.
I have the privilege of reading studies on a volunteer basis using teleradiology software donated by Nucleus.io. We have recently installed a new 64-channel Siemen's scanner, and are actively expanding our protocols to encompass the full spectrum of CT.
These cases have been selected for their advanced or uncommon (in Western countries) presentations. Reviewing such cases can help to augment training in urban environments where patients often present with much earlier disease states.
