Fetal Echocardiography Course is organized by Thomas Jefferson University (TJU) and will be held from Apr 08 - 09, 2021 at Thomas Jefferson University Hospital, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, United States of America.
Who Should Attend:
General sonographer, high risk obstetrics sonographers, pediatric cardiology sonographers, residents and fellows in radiology, pediatric cardiology, ob/gyn and maternal fetal medicine and any attending physicians practicing fetal ultrasound.
Thomas Jefferson University designates this live material activity for a maximum of 12 AMA PRA Category 1 Credits™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
This two-day program provides a comprehensive introduction to the science and practice of fetal echocardiography.
The course will provide an understanding of the unique requirements of fetal echo in the diagnosis of structural malformations of the heart and will also include the use of pulsed, continuous wave, and color Doppler as well as M-mode in fetal cardiovascular diagnosis. Findings from the ultrasonographic/Doppler assessment of fetal cardiovascular physiology will be related to the pre- and postnatal management of congenital heart disease. Throughout the program the clinical importance of observations made during the fetal echo exam will be detailed.
