Maternal-Fetal Imaging: Advances in OB-GYN Ultrasound Course is organized by World Class CME.
Release Date: April 13, 2018
Expiry Date: April 12, 2021
This video provides AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ for physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants who work in a clinical practice setting using maternal-fetal ultrasound for diagnosis and screening.
14 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
This course is a unique opportunity to learn in one offering how Guidelines and Practical Tips apply to both screening and diagnostic maternal-fetal imaging. Guidelines provide standards for routine care of patients and help medical care providers know what a basic exam should include – be it a screening obstetrical ultrasound examination for anatomy, a high-risk patient seeking established parameters for examining a fetus at risk for congenital heart disease or patients exposed to the Zika virus.
Upon completion of this conference, the participant will be able to:
• Demonstrate how to perform an optimal fetal cardiac exam by watching live scanning by a physician and sonographer
• Differentiate abnormally developing early pregnancies from normal based on sonographic correlation of anatomic findings
• Perform a basic obstetrical ultrasound examination, fulfilling the requirements set forth by the ACOG, ACR, and AIUM for a first trimester scan and >14 week scan
• Identify the ultrasound appearance of common and interesting fetal abdominal anomalies.
• Look for clues in evaluating ventricles to recognize normal and abnormal fetal brain diseases
• Utilize renal sonography to identify true hydronephrosis and avoid false positive diagnoses
• Describe definition of adherent placenta spectrum, risk factors, image acquisition and image interpretation
• Address Zika Virus concerns by recognizing which patients are at risk, identifying the sonographic features of congenital Zika Virus and developing a follow up testing and sonographic screening protocol
• Optimize resolution and evaluation of the fetal heart during the anatomy scan
• Recognize the classic ultrasound findings of ectopic pregnancy as well as ectopic pregnancies in unusual locations
• Understand the legal ramifications of performing obstetrical ultrasound and implement safeguards to mitigate your risk
• Discover the advantages of ultrasound for evaluating the female pelvis, including how to use ultrasound and physical exam at the same time
• Discuss common sonographic findings of female pelvic pain when evaluating pelvic problems including ovarian torsion and common gastrointestinal and vascular causes of pelvic pain
• Recognize various adnexal masses some of which are clearly benign and others more suspicious for malignancy
