Fetal Neurosonography Course 2019

Description

Two days with three internationally known experts in fetal medicine, ultrasound and MRI. Fetal Neursosonography and MRI Course is the essential course for every ultrasound and fetal medicine specialist.

 

Fetal CNS anomalies are common, variable and in many cases can result in poor neurological outcome. Many of the brain anomalies are associated with chromosomal, genetic and other syndromes. Precise fetal neuroimaging, especially neurosonography, is absolutely essential for proper diagnosis, counselling and management. In some cases fetal MRI provides additional and exceptional information which has significant clinical impact.

 

Our advanced Fetal Neursosonography and MRI Course will provide a comprehensive, critical and updated review about contemporary fetal neuroimaging and a wide spectrum of CNS anomalies. The new MRI session has been added to the program.

 

The first and second courses (2018 and 2019) were very successful and have received many positive reviews due to our unique uncomplicated and practical approach. The current upgraded third addition of Fetal Neursosonography Course (2020) is even more pragmatic.  It will provide the clear guidelines to the delegates: how to detect CNS anomaly and what to do after.

 

The course will include lectures, discussions of complicated cases and a quiz. A significant part of the course will deal with technical issues of practical Neurosonography and improvement of the visualisation of the brain. Our presentations include hundreds of videos of common and rare brain anomalies.
