Description

This activity will enable participants to incorporate new screening protocols including Doppler at time of nuchal translucency and anatomy scan to permit earlier and better evaluation of fetal heart anatomy .
This activity will enable participants to improve diagnosis of urogenital tract and bladder anomalies by identifying findings that suggest a complex GU anomaly and make a specific diagnosis.
This activity will enable participants to improve early diagnosis of MC twins complications by incorporating earlier evaluation, more advanced Doppler use, and earlier referral for treatment.
This activity will enable participants to reduce misdiagnosis of complex gynecological diagnoses, thereby reducing unnecessary imaging and intervention, by developing a protocol for assessment of adnexal mass and building confidence for “ultrasound only” diagnoses

We welcome back Program Directors Mary E. Norton and Roya Sohaey for this annual three-day advanced OB-GYN course in Seattle. For experienced physicians and sonographers, this curriculum covers skills and techniques to help you improve fetal brain and in-depth cardiac scanning, as well as imaging of the musculoskeletal, genitourinary, gastrointestinal and other systems. Become proficient at imaging and diagnosis during all three trimesters in order to scan both routine and high-risk pregnancy scenarios, including fetal intervention. Using gynecologic ultrasound in the diagnosis and treatment of adenomyosis and adnexal masses, and sonography of gynecologic emergencies will also be covered.

This course is designed for physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, certified nurse midwives, nurses, sonographers, and radiologic technologists who work in a clinical practice setting using maternal-fetal ultrasound for diagnosis and screening.

Educational Objectives

Upon completion of this conference, the participant will be able to:
• Improve skills in diagnosis of early pregnancy success and failure
• Develop an anatomic strategy for the diagnosis of brain anomalies
 Incorporate current practice guidelines for cardiac evaluation with emphasis on optimizing views and detection of congenital heart disease
 Distinguish between different types of fetal chest masses and understand different implications and treatment options for various disorders
 Incorporate state-of-the-art practices in prenatal genetic screening and testing
 Improve differential diagnosis accuracy for skeletal dysplasia, adnexal masses and abdominal wall defects involving the fetus including post-natal evaluation and treatment of fetal skeletal dysplasia
 Develop an approach to assessment and diagnosis of amniotic fluid abnormalities throughout pregnancy
 Describe the role and essential components of a complete evaluation of the fetal kidneys including strategies for follow up, in utero treatment, and postnatal diagnosis
 Improve 3D ultrasound skills for gynecological evaluation
 Develop an approach to assessment and diagnosis of complex urogenital anomalies, including disorders of sexual differentiation
 Distinguish between different types of twinning and develop strategies for early identification of twins in need of intervention
 Perform a basic obstetrical ultrasound examination, fulfilling the requirements set forth by the ISUOG and AIUM for a first trimester scan and >14 week scan
 Develop strategies for cervical assessment in pregnancies at risk for preterm birth.
 Distinguish critical placental and umbilical cord disorders using ultrasound and MR
 Improve skills in diagnosis of early pregnancy success and failure
 Develop an anatomic strategy for the diagnosis of brain anomalies
 Incorporate current practice guidelines for cardiac evaluation with emphasis on optimizing views and detection of congenital heart disease
