Dr. Muthoni Ritho headed a successful medical screening camp at Mount Kenya University from July 29th – August 2, 2018. The camp screened for an array of medical conditions including, cancers, nutritional and lifestyle illnesses.
Cervical cancer screening was an essential part of the program. Cervical cancer is the most frequent cancer among women between 15 and 44 years of age in Kenya. By providing the necessary screening to identify potentially cancerous lesions before they develop into full-blown cancer, the medical camp is helping to reduce the number of Kenyan women developing the disease.
MobileODT’s EVA System was chosen to perform colposcopy during the medical camp. Dr. Muthoni K. Ritho, Head of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at the Mount Kenya University Medical School was pleased to incorporate the EVA into the screening camp.
“The EVA system is a superb tool.” Dr. Ritho explained, “It’s combined utility as a digital colposcope and as a digital record keeping tool made the experience of screening, record keeping and record retrieval flawless.”
Patrick Wanyoko, MobileODT’s regional manager for Africa, attended the camp medical camp to see the EVA in action. “Seeing the EVA deployed in the field and playing an active part in saving women’s lives is what MobileODT is all about.We are honored to be chosen by the Mount Kenya University’s Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology to play at part in this important healthcare drive.
