SAMA Second Annual Fundraising Walk
Fletcher’s Boat House, C&O Canal
May 18th, 2014
SAMA Second Annual Fundraising Walk was a great success. We enjoyed the beautiful weather, and collected $6085!
A big Thank You to Danka Milojković and Zlata Jovanović for organizing this event !
Collected money will be used to purchase multi-frequency transducer (probe) for neonatal cranial ultrasound for Children’s Hospital in Subotica.
Cranial ultrasonography (CUS) is the best point of care neuroimaging method available for premature and sick babies. Routine screening cranial US should be performed on all infants with birth weight < 1250 grams or gestation < 30 weeks. Screening cranial US should be performed at 7 to 14 days of age and repeated at 36 to 40 weeks postmenstrual age. The transducer should be of 5-8 Mhz multi-frequency sector probe.
We are grateful to all friends of SAMA who contributed:
