Description

Two days with two internationally known experts in fetal medicine and ultrasound.

CNS anomalies are common, variable and can be associated with poor neurological outcome. Many of the brain anomalies are associated with chromosomal, genetic and other syndromes. Precise fetal neuroimaging is absolutely essential for proper diagnosis, counselling and management. For decades ultrasound was considered as primary and powerful tool for fetal brain examination and diagnosis of CNS malformations, especially at the time of screening for fetal structural anomalies (20 weeks).

Our advanced course will provide comprehensive, critical and updated review about contemporary fetal neuroimaging and wide spectrum of CNS anomalies.

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