Extensive three days course designed for practicing obstetricians, sonographers and midwives to extend their knowledge and skills in obstetric scanning. The course summarizes the principals and the techniques used in performing obstetric scanning to enable diagnosis and optimum image interpretations. It focuses on screening for fetal anomalies, fetal biometry and umbilical artery Doppler. The course is unique in providing practice on real pregnant women.
After attending this course, the participant will be able to:
- Recognize the standards guidelines for mid trimester anomaly scan.
- Ability to identify fetal abnormalities.
- Ability to perform growth scan and umbilical artery Doppler.
Obstetric ultrasound scan plays an important role in antenatal care. It is one of the main tool used for screening for fetal structural anomalies and growth restriction. In current practice, the surges of assisted reproduction, advance maternal age and the presence of maternal co-morbidities make the screening for fetal anomalies crucial. Diagnosis of fetal abnormalities and growth restriction allow for further invasive testing and decisions about pregnancy care and delivery plan.
