Abstract

The value of routine real-time scanning by Aboriginal health workers at antenatal clinics in a remote area of Australia was assessed using data derived from 206 women. The accuracy of the health workers' reports, the detection of high risk factors, the selection of a place for the delivery and the degree of antenatal attendance are discussed.
