Radiology Department on a Hospital Ship-Africa Mercy
The Africa Mercy is the largest nongovernmental humanitarian hospital ship working globally today, providing medical care to a group of 15 West African nations for more than 20 years and serving some of the most impoverished and underserved populations in the world. It even has a small radiology department on board, along with six operating rooms and a small ICU and inpatient wards. This radiology deparment is described in article in AJR doi: 10.2214/AJR.12.9087. AJR February 2013 vol. 200 no. 2 W124-W129. There is provision for on site and remote interpretation by voluntary radiologists. This report describes good work being done in this unique concept. Well done!
