Description

The must course for every fetal medicine consultant and ultrasound expert.

The aim of the course is to provide fetal medicine/ ultrasound professionals with substantial skills and knowledge to facilitate early correct diagnosis of fetal CNS anomalies. The course is absolutely practical and it based on a generous amount of early fetal video clips, individual training on 3D datasets of various brain anomalies and quiz.

Delegates will benefit from the exclusive facilities and latest ultrasound technology by the GE Academy.
