Dr Joachim Richter M.D.
My work focussed on clinical research in tropical medicine, in particular on the application of ultrasonography in tropical diseases.
I started publishing on ultrasonography in schistosomiasis in 1992.
In 2000, I was a co-editor of the international protocol on ultrasonography in schistosomiasis published by the WHO.
In 2014, we discovered and reported the outbreak of autochthonous schistosomiasis in Corsica / France
Other publications included works on the ultrasound findings associated to fascioliasis, echinococcosis and ascariasis, on the use of ultrasonography in malaria and on the echocardiographic findings in a population with limited resources.
