Course Description

This two day intensive, hands-on obstetric ultrasound course is designed for sonographers experienced in the concepts of ultrasound scanning.

The course aims to take the attendee through the  foetal morphology scan and foetal growth and wellbeing

The latest techniques and requirements for the 2nd trimester Morphology Ultrasound. The course will cover both normal and abnormal fetal anatomy, fetal measurement, documentation, fetal wellbeing, the cervix, placenta and image acquisition, instilling effective scanning techniques, methodology and protocols.

The third trimester section will cover and assess fetal wellbeing, fetal weight, fetal Doppler and placental position, instilling effective scanning techniques, methodology and protocols. Applications and techniques for trans vaginal and trans labial scanning  will be discussed and demonstrated.

The practical hands-on sessions are conducted by ASMI’s highly qualified obstetric sonographers and the small group structure ensures a collaborative and supportive learning environment, utilizing a mix of didactic lectures, demonstrations and scanning tuition.
