UMST is Proudthat Dr. Loai Osman from the First Medicine batch (2001) at The University of Medical Sciences & Technology. Dr. Loai Osman is a Pneumatolog,  received his specialization training in Ireland and then in Britain. Dr.Loai and his Colleagues achieved pioneering procedure at the Norfolk and Norwich University Hospital (NNUH) to improve care for patients with suspected lung cancer.

The procedure uses an ultrasound probe – Radial EBUS in conjunction with real time Navigational Equipment – to take a sample of patient’s suspected tumour, which will enable hospital staff to diagnose the cancer.

The Hospital has become the first in the UK to establish a service with its own equipment to carry out navigational bronchoscopies, which is the medical equivalent of creating a sat nav map around a patient’s lung to take a biopsy

We at UMST Congratulate Dr.Loai Osman for the huge success, wish him the best of luck and to all successful Sudanese Doctors in UK.
