Advance Obstetric Ultrasound/Fetal Anomaly Scan

Fetal Genetic Scan/Aneuploidy Scan

  • Key features:

    • It is a Seven days Advanced Obstetrics ultrasound course for Pregnancy Assessment.
    • This Advanced Ultrasound for Pregnancy Assessment courses are delivered with a main focus on the acquisition of extended practical skills on scanning techniques and protocols to identify/exclude fetal anomaly including Chromosomal or aneuploidy scan.
    • This course will give you the practical and theoretical knowledge to perform and understand ultrasound examination in pregnancy with emphasis on ability of identifying fetal anomalies, including sonographic soft-markers for genetic abnormalities.
    • This program will also demonstrate the techniques of Doppler assessment of Fetal-maternal circulation, fetal well being, IUGR and Biophysical profile.
    • One to One Hands-on training is the main focus on practical skills acquisition with practical and didactic classes with instructor-student of 1:3 ratios.
    • State of the art training facility with modern ultrasound equipment ranging from basic machine to TVS, Color Doppler, 3D/4D facilities.
    • The utilization of real pregnant patient supplemented by videos, slides, lectures etc.
    • Time-frame can be extended up to 15-30 days according to the participant’s special needs.
  • Target group:

    • This Advanced Obstetrics Ultrasound Program assumes a reasonable experience in the basic components of obstetrics ultrasound scanning.
    • Are you an Obstetrician/Sonologist looking to develop your ultrasound skills to identify fetal anomalies, Genetic or aneuploidy scanning?
    • Are you an Obstetrician/Sonologist looking to learn ultrasound for pregnancy assessment in advance level with the ability to assess fetal-maternal circulation or Doppler assessment?
    • Do you simply want to improve, refresh or extend your obstetric ultrasound technique?
  • Course Objectives:

    This practical and focused course will provide you with the skills to:-

    • Describe physical principles to understand and operate the ultrasound equipment.
