Overview

Ultrasound plays a crucial role in the evaluation and management of maternal and fetal health. This interactive workshop will provide participants with the required knowledge and skills in obstetrics ultrasound.

The workshop will focus on indications, anatomy, scanning techniques, normal and abnormal findings involved in an obstetrics ultrasound examination. Hands-on practical session will be conducted to supplement the didactic teaching. It is ideal for practitioners who wish to expand their scope of practice in obstetrics sonography and can be taken as a single course for continuing professional development.
