You may already know this.....A group of doctors from the Mangalore
HeartScan Foundation and Omega Hospital (Mangalore Karnataka India) have

One constraint is that the doctors don't know how to use this technology in
health and we have no support team in Mangalore...But it is a very active

In the mean time they are building capacity just getting everyone at the

I am copying Dr. K Mukund on this. Not sure the mail is checked frequently.
