Learning Objectives

  1. Define how 3D ultrasound can be used to identify facial masses, fetal limb anomalies, fetal brain anomalies, and fetal spine anomalies.
  2. Increase the current knowledge of cleft lip identification and how 2D and 3D ultrasound to identify cleft lip and palate.
  3. Explain the most common forms of skeletal dysplasia and key ultrasound characteristics that distinguish normal from lethal and non-lethal forms of dysplasia.
  4. Describe the most common types of abdominal wall defects, their associated anomalies, and necessary testing and follow-up after this lecture.
  5. Review the three different types of placentation accurately and understand the most common disorders associated with each. This will allow more accurate diagnosis of TTTS and monoamniotic twin gestations.
  6. Report on how US and MRI will show how these modalities complement each other, and how fetal anomalies identified on US will need different imaging follow-up. Learners will know the key intracranial imaging techniques to obtain.
  7. Demonstrate the proper technique to Doppler imaging in obstetric ultrasound. They will also know the appropriate indications for each type of Doppler assessment.
  8. Define the fetal cardiac structures and echocardiography guidelines as well as the 9-views needed to identify a normal heart. They will also be able to recognize the most common anomalies seen in cardiac evaluation.
