Effective Prenatal Screening of Congenital Heart Disease
Course Directors: Dr JS Carvalho & Prof S Yen Ho

This course is held annually, in London (joint meeting, St. George’s & Royal Brompton Hospitals).

It is primarily aimed at medical and non-medical sonographers who provide a routine fetal anomaly service. It is also suitable for trainees in fetal medicine, paediatric cardiology, obstetric ultrasound and advanced sonographers wishing to extend their knowledge on congenital cardiac anomalies.

It has been specifically designed to address the varying interests and needs of delegates and provides options of attending one or both days of presentations and discussions. The option of attending the third day, which offers supervised hands-on fetal scanning, is available to a limited number of delegates.

Course Objectives

  • To introduce/improve the sonographer's technique for imaging of the fetal heart
  • To enable the sonographer to identify the range of appearances of the normal and abnormal heart
  • To enable the sonographer to distinguish between normal and abnormal features
