Obstetrics Gynecology

Patient care journey

Colleen Timpanaro is a GE HealthCare colleague who was working for the ultrasound business when she scanned her 2-year-old son, Lachlan, using an ultrasound system she had at home preparing for a demo the next day. A sonographer by trade, and as she was scanning him, she found a malignant Wilms tumor. He was treated right away with chemo and doctors removed his right kidney. He’s now 15 and in perfect health! Scanning him and finding that tumor with amazing detail before symptoms arose saved his life.

Fetal ultrasound exams are critically important in determining a fetus’ growth and development, as well as the heath of a patient’s pregnancy. Early detection of defects can prevent illness and death in both babies and mothers.
