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.
Typical presentation topics for this course include:
- A Re-Introduction to Cardiac Anatomy and Situs
- The Two Minute Heart Study: Position, Size, Function and Rhythm – look for Disproportion
- Basic Cardiovascular Embryology
- Genetic Implications and Indications for Fetal Echo
- Guidelines: Images required for Fetal Echo during Routine Anatomy and Targeted Cardiovascular Studies
- The Comprehensive Fetal Echocardiogram
- Veno-Atrial & Atrio-Ventricular Connections and Ventriculo-Arterial Alignments: The Segmental Approach To Cogenital Heart Disease
- The Heterotaxy Syndromes
- Fetal Cardiovascular Doppler: Why, How and Where
- Evaluation and Treatment of Fetal Arrhythmias
- Defining Congestive Heart Failure in the Fetus
- Demostration: Video of the Complete, Comprehensive Fetal Echocardiogram
- Fetal Chest Masses Effecting the Cardiovascular System
- Interesting, Difficult Fetal Heart Ultrasound Diagnoses
- Class Participation: Our Video Clips – Your Diagnoses
To successfully complete this activity, the required evaluation must be completed no later than Tuesday, December 15, 2020. Thereafter, the evaluation will no longer be available and credits will not be issued. No refunds will be offered for failure to complete the required evaluation by the stated deadline.
This program is designed for physicians and sonographers who currently perform ultrasound imaging and wish to extend their capabilities to incorporate fetal echocardiography ultrasound imaging.
Upon completion of this course, participants will be able to:
- list the elements of screening and complete fetal heart exams
- identify the common forms of congenital heart disease
- recognize an abnormal four chamber view of the heart
- relate abnormal cardiac Doppler findings to the clinical outcome
