          Abstract

          This article depicts the usage of ultrasound imaging in field healthcare facilities of St. Elisabeth University of Healthcare and Social Work in Bratislava – in two refugee camps in Greece during a one-week period when they were staffed by a Physician experienced in and licensed for ultrasound imaging. 16.2% of patients have been indicated by the Physician to be examined by ultrasound and 15.8% of these had abnormal findings. The majority of the examinations were indicated for pregnancy-related issues or abdominal pain. Despite this sample being too small we have clearly observed a great need for skills in obstetric ultrasound in this humanitarian project.
