Bibliographical note

We would like to thank ISUOG, the ISUOG Basic Training Task Force, and the ISUOG Outreach Committee, since this work would not have been possible without their support. The Omani Ministry of Health provided invaluable support and extensive guidance, also without which the course could not have taken place. Dr Mouza Al Salmani, head of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology in the Sultan Qabooz Royal Hospital in Muscat, provided the training facility and coordinated volunteer patients, without which, once again, this project would not have been possible. We would also like to thank GE for providing the machines for the course, as well as the ISUOG ambassadors in the region for facilitating and supporting the program. We are grateful to all those with whom we have had the pleasure of working during this project and duly extend thanks to: Ges? Antonio B?ez for coordinating the project, our project adviser Hisham Mirghani, and the ISUOG trainers led by Titia Cohen-Overbeek, Nimrah Abassi, Valeria Angioni, Pauline Schut and Divya Singh who delivered the ISUOG lectures and provided practical training on the ground in Oman.
