With four days of undiluted focus, you’ll be able to build the hand-eye skills to conduct the complete BPP and anatomy survey of the fetus. You’ll learn how to orient yourself to three dimensional anatomy with two dimensional imaging and identify, measure, and document every pertinent feature of the developing fetus.
Our total immersion approach puts you at the bedside with live pregnancies the first day. Under the patient guidance of your expert instructor you’ll develop and refine skills in structure identification and measurement immediately. The small group setting fosters group interaction and collaborative learning. After hours our scan lab remains open for your own independent practice to fine tune probe manipulation and machine controls on yourself or in colleague with your class peers.

This course is conducted independent of any commercial or institutional grant, industry support or sponsorship. No faculty members have any commercial interests or participation that might influence its content. Upon completion of this activity, you should be able to:
-Conduct a systematic ultrasound exam of the gravid uterus, identifying, measuring, and documenting all intracranial, thoracic, abdominal and extremity structures.
-Identify and document the fetal heart with focus on four-chamber development, inflow and outflow tract , structures, and cardiovascular structural continuity.
-Systematically evaluate the sonographic appearance of each component of every organ and correlate it to the expected appearance at each stage of fetal development.
-Identify each sonographic feature of the fetal spine and demonstrate the complete systematic protocol for inspecting it.
-Estimate fetal gestational age using cranial, abdominal, and extremity metrics; identify common sources of operator error in acquiring images requisite to the process.
-Apply Doppler measurement of cord RI to reconcile suspected IUGR in fetal development small for dates.
-Demonstrate a systematic protocol to properly survey the adnexa, cervix, and cup-de-sac from a transabdominal approach.
-Discuss the current understanding of acoustic power output vs. human bioeffects in instrumentation licensed for human diagnostic use.
-Demonstrate proper electrical and biosafety measures and apply proper body mechanics to minimize patient and operator risk.
