  • 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 wellbeing and 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 1:4 ratios.
  • State of the art training facility with modern ultrasound equipment ranging from basic machine to high resolution 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?
