16 mothers die every day in Uganda due to complications related to maternal health, a worrying statistic, further exacerbated by challenges presenting with Coronavirus. Some of the complications leading to maternal death include Post-Partum hemorrhage, obstructed labor, and abortion. The contributory causes of such complications such as placenta previa, severe oligohydramnios can be detected early on ultrasound and timely interventions done with the mother and the baby saved. However, the traditional ultrasound machines are very expensive, use a lot of power and are sophisticated to use. As such, we have developed M-SCAN, a portable power-efficient ultrasound device that can work on laptops, tablets, and mobile phones to fill this gap.
