Fetal Echocardiography Training Course

This program provides a comprehensive introduction to the science and practice of fetal echocardiography. The Fetal Echocardiography Training Course will provide you an understanding of the unique requirements of fetal echo in the diagnosis of structural malformations of the heart and will also include the use of pulsed, continuous wave, and color Doppler as well as M-mode in fetal cardiovascular diagnosis. Findings from the ultrasonographic/Doppler assessment of fetal cardiovascular physiology will be related to the pre- and postnatal management of congenital heart disease. Throughout the program, the clinical importance of observations made during the fetal echo exam will be detailed.

Who should attend

General sonographer high-risk obstetrics sonographers, pediatric cardiology sonographers, residents and fellows in radiology, pediatric cardiology, ob/gyn and maternal-fetal medicine and any attending physicians practicing fetal ultrasound.
