• OB/GYN Ultrasound (3 Days)

The three-day ultrasound program is a systematic presentation of obstetric and gynecological scanning using an integrated teaching approach of lecture, assigned reading, testing, demonstration, and clinical scanning of models. Didactic training is reinforced through clinical laboratory experience.

Boost your confidence by attending our three-day OB/GYN ultrasound course that is focused on the ultrasound examination and evaluation of the female pelvis. Each day begins with lecture, including physics, instrumentation, female anatomy, fetal biometry. Case studies will be presented to familiarize the participants with normal and abnormal findings.

Participants will finish the day in our on-site scanning lab, where they will benefit from live models and hands on experience supervised by a faculty member. The course will give participants the skills and knowledge necessary to complete and understand an ultrasound using transabdominal and endovaginal protocols according to AIUM guidelines.
