Description

The must course for every fetal medicine and ultrasound professional, obstetricians and fetal medicine midwives and sonographers.

 

We are happy to invite you to the most important part of our internationally recognised course for diagnosis of congenital heart defects (CHD). The latest data shows that currently about half of severe CHD in UK are prenatally undiagnosed so the course designed to deliver a new approach to detection of fetal cardiac anomalies.

 

The aim of the course is to provide ultrasound professionals with substantial skills and knowledge to facilitate an early diagnosis of the heart diseases. The material of the course is based on extensive practical work for diagnosis of CHD and more than 10 years teaching experience with vast analysis of prenatally undiagnosed cases.
