Michael Magro Foundation Opens a New Window on Advanced Cardiac Care for Kids at Winthrop

Dedicated to easing the burdens of children with serious illnesses and their families, the Michael Magro Foundation recently awarded Winthrop-University Hospital with a $25,000 grant to fund an upgraded software package for the GE Vivid Q echo machine, a state-of-the-art portable echocardiogram machine.

The advanced technology in the newly upgraded Vivid Q echocardiography equipment yields high quality information about the heart in superior detail and exceptional clarity. In addition, utilizing Automated Function Imaging, the machine can monitor the heart before, during and after chemotherapy, enabling physicians to establish a baseline for pediatric cancer patients, determine both the short- and long-term effects of treatment, and evaluate potential cardiac damage.

Present at the dedication of the newly upgraded GE Vivid Q echo machine were (l.-r.) Gloria Petralia, Administrative Director of the Department of Pediatrics at Winthrop; Donna Better, MD, Director of the Pediatric Echocardiography Laboratory and Perinatal Cardiology at Winthrop; Terrie Magro, Co-Founder of The Michael Magro Foundation; Carlos Montoya, MD, Chief of Pediatric Cardiology at Winthrop; Linda Sweeney, Practice Manager of the Cancer Center for Kids at Winthrop; and Warren Rosenfeld, MD, Chairman of the Department of Pediatrics at Winthrop.
