· It is a post graduate diploma program in OBGYN Ultrasound.
· It is a six-month comprehensive course on both Transabdominal and Transvaginal OBGYN Sonography.
· This program will give you the practical and theoretical knowledge to perform and understand both transabdominal and transvaginal pelvic examination, at your 'Point of Care' with AIUM Standard Protocol, including fetal structural and genetic anomaly screening.
· One to One Hands-on training with state of the art training facility, modern ultrasound equipment, supplemented by videos, lectures & American-Canadian licensed instructor.
· This program is intended for Gynecologist & Obstetricians, OBGYN residents & MRCOG candidates and allied health professionals who wish to perform OBGYN Ultrasonography independently for diagnostic purposes in advance standing or tertiary level.
· For sonologist or sonographers who are looking to enhance their ability to identify female pelvic pathology and pregnancy screening at more advance or tertiary level including first trimester and 2nd trimester fetal anomaly scan, Infertility screening, Fetal surveillance and IUGR assessment using Duplex Doppler imaging in both transabdominal and transvaginal approach.
· For those who wants to enhance or improve their technique in both transabdominal and transvaginal scanning.
