About the Meeting
This symposium is structured as a practical, clinically oriented review of recent advances in OB-GYN ultrasound. A mix of topics including comprehensive gynecological imaging and detailed evaluation of normal fetal anatomy along with abnormalities of fetal major organ systems will be discussed. In keeping with progress in this field, detailed information on the use of three-dimensional ultrasound and fetal imaging in the early gestation is presented. Guidelines and indications for OB-GYN ultrasounds are reviewed in-depth so registrants can expand their clinical practices. Tips, images, and pitfalls provide balance to the program.

Target Audience
This program is designed for obstetricians and gynecologists, maternal-fetal medicine physicians, radiologists, family medicine physicians, genetic counselors and sonographers, who order, perform and interpret ultrasound examinations in obstetrics and gynecology. Residents in obstetrics and gynecology, as well as fellows in maternal fetal medicine will also benefit greatly from this course. The goal of this educational activity is to bring the level of practice for the health practitioners to a higher degree of proficiency in obstetric and gynecologic sonography.

Educational Objectives

Attendees should, at the completion of this course, be able to:
  • Optimize scanning parameters and techniques used to perform OB-GYN ultrasound using gray scale, 3D and Doppler sonography.
  • Incorporate the newly approved updated guidelines for performance of obstetrical ultrasound.
  • Effectively assess patients with a variety of gynecologic disorders using ultrasound.
  • Evaluate normal fetal anatomy in the first trimester and second trimester.
  • Recognize the most common congenital fetal malformations and review the approach to patient counseling.
  • Discuss the use of ultrasound in screening for fetal aneuploidy.
No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.
