New TOE Transducer

We have recently purchased a transoesophageal echocardiogram transducer with significant and generous contributions from the Mallee Health foundation and Mildura Base Hospital, and the purchase facilitated by Monash University Regional Clinical School.

Our particular thanks go to Fiona Wright and Ross Lanyon. A number of patients are transferred elsewhere for a transoesophageal echocardiography, and being able to do it locally will be of great convenience and benefit to our population.

Two of our echocardiogram technicians, Lisa and Margot, recently attended the Royal Adelaide Hospital for further instruction regarding the technique of transoesophageal echocardiography, and were well looked after there by one of our visiting cardiologists, Mitra Shirazi.
