Description

The aim of the course is to raise awareness for a wide range of fetal anomalies and to provide ultrasound professionals with substantial skills and knowledge to facilitate the routine scan properly every time.

 

Various fetal anomalies will be discussed with specific attention for their clinical significance and management, including the principles of scanning and counselling. The delegates will learn what can be achieved today in early diagnosis of fetal anomalies.

 

The material of the course is based on more then 30 years’ practical use of ultrasound for diagnosis of fetal anomalies and more than 10 years teaching experience.

 

The course will be of interest to anyone involved in obstetric ultrasound: fetal medicine specialists, obstetricians, trainees, sonographers, midwifes and students.
