In 1996, the Jefferson Ultrasound Research and Education Institute and AGBU, under the direction of AGBU Central Board Member, Dr. Levon Nazarian, Professor of Radiology at the Jefferson University Hospital in Philadelphia, USA, established ultrasound departments serving thousands of patients at the Oncology and Erebuni hospitals. Four years later, AGBU and Jefferson opened a new ultrasound training center at the Yerevan State Medical University. Medical personnel receive instruction and hands-on training at the Ultrasound Center in all aspects of ultrasound, including interventional, abdominal, obstetrics and gynecology. Since its establishment, the Center has trained over 140 doctors in the certificate program and more than 235 students in the medical internship program. With the sponsorship of Dr. Nazarian, the Ultrasound Center obtained a CT Scan machine in 2005. AGBU donors continue their support of the development of ultrasound research in Armenia and Karabakh by periodically donating new ultrasound machines to hospitals in Armenia, Karabakh and Javakhk. In 2010, through the donation of AGBU Council of Trustees member Nazar Nazarian, the “AGBU-YSMU Levon and Claudia Nazarian Radiology Center” opened at the Yerevan State Medical University (YSMU).
