    Re: Latest FASH can podcast

    Wow?! Absolutely astonishing. Never thought I would see the day the FASH scan being performed in Canada!! Perhaps we should consider sending our ultrasound fellows over there. Only wonder if the patient would have done any better if the laparotomy was delayed (if possible?) and performed after having longer period of TB antimicrobial cover. We found that if surgery is performed to early the outcome is bad. Most of our patient’s abdominal symptoms recede when the TB Rx kicks in. Thanks again for providing us with a follow up broadcast on the FASH scan. Such a common technique for us lot who work in low resource settings.
