“Teaching is my passion and I am keen to share my knowledge and experience and make ultrasound professionals to feel more confident in Fetal Echocardiography, Fetal Neurosonography and Early Fetal Scan.”

I strongly believe that:

  • All specialists in obstetric ultrasound must be able to diagnose severe congenital heart defects (CHD) as early as possible.
  • Proper education in fetal echocardiography for every ultrasound practitioner will improve CHD detection rate and save many lives.
  • Majority of severe CHD are detectable at 11-13 weeks scan and every trained doctor/sonographer can perform early cardiac diagnosis.
