Veterinarians and wildlife biologists in Sydney, Australia are using GE ultrasound equipment to fight the chlamydia infections currently plaguing populations of koala bears. Chlamydia is a serious disease for these furry faces. It’s both difficult to diagnose, and capable of causing a host of complications, including internal organ damage and sometimes death. However, if treated in time, it is curable, and researchers are using the ultrasound equipment for early detection. Learn more about how ultrasound is being used to help vulnerable populations of koalas at GE Reports.
