OB/GYN Ultrasound (5 Days) This five-day program is directed toward the performance of women’s ultrasound procedures. An integrated approach of lecture, demonstrations, hands-on scanning experience with models accomplishes the educational objectives. The basics of instrumentation and physics are reinforced in the laboratory. The class is from 8 AM to 5 PM with a lunch hour. Advanced Health Education Center’s training model for skills classes provides a systematic approach of presenting an overview of the instrumentation and physics related to ultrasound. There will be both classroom presentation and hands-on scanning to provide for recognition of anatomy related to the female pelvis and various stages of gestation. Attention will also be given to OB/Gyn measurements utilizing both the transabdominal and endovaginal scan approach. A variety of ultrasound equipment is available in the scan lab to allow for development of skills and appropriate scan protocols. A complete two-week program can be accomplished by preceding this course with the Abdominal Ultrasound course. Objectives At the completion of this course, the learner will be able to: • Utilize the principles of instrumentation to set up ultrasound equipment for scanning. • Recognize and identify fetal anatomy and the gynecologic orientation of the female pelvis. • Perform a basic endovaginal ultrasound exam. • Perform a satisfactory fetal ultrasound exam. • Identify the fetal and uterine anomalies and their ultrasound appearance. • Apply appropriate measurement techniques in transabdominal and endovaginal scanning. Course Topics • Instrumentation • Anatomy Review • Scan Protocols • Orientation and Perspective • Endovaginal Approach • Non-pregnant Female Pelvis • First Trimester • Second and Third Trimester • Fetal Growth and Development • Biophysical Profiles • Gestational Measurement • Complications in Pregnancy Target Audience Physicians who are at an entry level of ultrasound scanning and interpretation, i.e. OB/GYN specialists, Family Practice, Emergency Medicine and others with a special interest in ultrasound.
