In addition to initial training courses, she gathered important information for further cooperation in the field and summarized it in her report.

The most important points from her report:

  1. The establishment of a angiological department is due to the patient population necessarily desirable
  2. The investigations could already begin with the available equipment from a technical point of view
  3. Existing equipment requires maintenance, repair and batteries
  4. Personnel / professional requirements still have to be created

She was very pleased with the great interest in her training in the field of angiology from the numerous young medical colleagues.
