Course Overview

New this year - 3 additional hours of hands-on skills practice included in Friday session!

This course is designed to provide the participant with an understanding of the applications of limited OB ultrasound. Teaching methods integrate didactic content and 7 hours of hands-on scanning practicum with pregnant women for AP Providers / MDs. Topics include an introduction to ultrasound physics and instrumentation, fetal anatomy and biometry, amniotic fluid index, first trimester dating and markers of aneuploidy.     

Each registrant will be provided with a programmed learning DVD or USB entitled "Obstetric Ultrasonography: Normal and Abnormal Findings." This self-learning tool contains 24 interactive chapters filled with diagrams, images and videos covering fetal biometry and anatomy in all trimesters including both normal and abnormal findings as well as the placenta, biophysical testing, physics and instrumentation. Registrants will be provided with a list of chapters that should be studied prior to the course*. The DVD/USB runs on current Windows and Macintosh operating systems. 

*Note:  the information recommended for review before the workshop will only be referenced in the didactic portion of the workshop - it will NOT be covered again and subsequent information will build upon knowledge gained from the DVD/USB. Please come prepared.
