20th Annual High-Risk Fetal Imaging Conference PLUS Hands-On Fetal Echo Course

September 29, 2023 to September 30, 2023

Ultrasound is the primary modality for identifying fetal anomalies in pregnancy. With the rising population in Colorado, the number of births has also increased. In order to meet this increased demand, ultrasound screening for fetal anomalies has largely moved away from subspecialty clinics and into the generalist OB/GYN office. These screening ultrasounds are performed by sonographers trained in OB ultrasound, but their exposure to fetal anomalies and high-risk pregnancies is limited compared to the exposures in tertiary care centers. This conference will provide education in the ultrasound identification and management of fetal anomalies, higher order multiples, and Doppler ultrasound. Sonographers and providers who attend this conference will be better-suited to know when to refer pregnancies to a high-risk specialist after identification of the most common anomalies in a fetus.

Friday's sessions will have a virtual option. However, Saturday will be live/in-person only with no online access to the course.

Learning Objectives

  • Explain how 3D ultrasound can be used to identify facial masses, fetal limb anomalies, fetal brain anomalies, and fetal spine anomalies.
  • Analyze cleft lip identification and how 2D and 3D ultrasound to identify cleft lip and palate.
  • Identify the most common forms of skeletal dysplasia and key ultrasound characteristics that distinguish normal from lethal and non-lethal forms of dysplasia.
  • Identify the most common types of abdominal wall defects, their associated anomalies, and necessary testing and follow-up after this lecture.
  • Identify 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.
  • Assess how these modalities complement each other, and how fetal anomalies identified on US will need different imaging follow-up.
  • Name the key intracranial imaging techniques to obtain.
  • Define the proper technique to Doppler imaging in obstetric ultrasound and cite the appropriate indications for each type of Doppler assessment.
  • Discuss the fetal cardiac structures and echocardiography guidelines as well as the 9-views needed to identify a normal heart.
  • List the most common anomalies seen in cardiac evaluation.
