We understand that as a healthcare professional, time is of the essence. Our in-depth 5-day OB/GYN ultrasound course helps the participants obtain extensive knowledge of female and fetal anatomy through lecture followed by faculty-supervised, hands-on training with live models. Join us as we increase your confidence level and scanning skills in this course by providing an overview of ultrasound physics, first, second, and third trimester anatomy, measurements and anomalies.
Our state of the art scan lab increases your ability to recognize normal and abnormal anatomy. The opportunity to practice fetal measurements on a variety of models improves the techniques needed to acquire diagnostic images according to AIUM guidelines. Both transabdominal and endovaginal scanning approaches will be utilized in the scan lab allowing for overall development of skills and appropriate scan protocols.
