This three-day OB-GYN hands-on ultrasound course provides a strong foundation to perform and/or interpret OB-GYN ultrasound examinations using transabdominal and endovaginal techniques. The course is taught by leading ultrasound experts and includes lectures, interactive case presentations using an audience response system, and extensive hands-on scanning, featuring a 3:1 ratio with live models for a realistic training experience. Topics include imaging fundamentals, scan protocols, GYN anatomy & pathology, first trimester ultrasound, Sonography in the 2nd and 3rd trimester, fetal biometry, fetal heart screening & fetal abnormalities.
Objectives & Topics
Upon completion of the program, the participant should be able to:
Increase the participants’ knowledge to better perform and/or interpret gynecology and obstetrical ultrasound examinations.
