This year the Course on Fetal Imaging will provide you with the latest information on strategies for optimizing the approach to screening and diagnosis of fetal pathology and discuss treatment options. You will learn about syndromes detection in the first and second trimesters, the role of ultrasound imaging for the diagnosis and management of congenital infections and fetal brain injuries, and fetal malformations.

The course is divided into four sessions. The first session will discuss the scanning approaches and the role of ultrasound scanning in the NIPT era. After we will move to prenatal diagnostics of fetal syndromes: US markers of common trisomies, benefits of 3D ultrasound, and diagnostic significance of fetal limb anomalies. The third session is devoted to different types of fetus brain injuries - how to visualize for diagnosis and how to interpret what’s seen. At the end of the Course, we will talk about a sophisticated approach to fetal malformations: targeted US imaging, MRI evaluation, and further management options. In the focus here will be thorax and thoracic organs, gastrointestinal anomalies, gastroschisis, and diaphragmatic hernia.

Welcome to use the opportunity to learn from experts in the field and stay ahead of the curve!

The course is particularly interesting for Ob&Gyn doctors, maternal-fetal specialists, ultrasonographers, prenatal genetics, and those passionate in these fields.
