Targeted to all clinicians who are already accomplished at surface obstetric scanning and is presented as the final and optional day of our Hands-On OB/Pelvic Imaging course. You'll learn the process and protocol to master the delicate critical hands-eye skills to complete the transvaginal pelvic sonogram. We'll focus on systematic inspection of the entire uterus, adnexa, and accessory pelvic structures. We'll show you hoe to optimize both standard and post-processing controls to completely evaluate soft tissue anatomy. You'll also learn how to make fullest use of color, spectral, and power Doppler to completely evaluate tissue vascularity. Hands-on practice with live subjects.

- Complete a systematic survey of the pelvis using TV technology, identifying, measuring, and documenting all reproductive structures and relational structures.
- Use Doppler ultrasound features to evaluate gross vascularity and microvascular physiology in the evaluation of ovarian, uterine, and mass lesion histology.
- Identify and differentiate tubal pathology, including ectopic pregnancy.
- Cite the limits of spatial resolution and input dynamic range accorded by the higher frequency transvaginal probe transducer; compare it to surface pelvic imaging.
- Apply proper septic technique and appropriate patient communication in all aspects of the patient encounter.
