Event Description

We understand that as a healthcare professional, time is of the essence. Our in depth five day OB/GYN ultrasound course helps the participants obtain extensive knowledge of female and fetal anatomy through half days of 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.

Scan with the experts:

Sometimes it takes an additional day or two of scanning to generate confidence in your new skill set. If you would like to add a day or two, all our ultrasound skills courses can be scheduled with additional scan days in our state of the art interactive scan lab. Give us a call and discuss your needs with our faculty so we can help you achieve your goals.

At the completion of this course, you will be able to:

  • Set up ultrasound system in order to obtain diagnostic images
  • Recognize normal and abnormal anatomy while performing a basic endovaginal ultrasound exam of the pelvis
  • Perform a satisfactory fetal ultrasound exam following the AIUM recommended protocol
