Congenital Zika Virus Syndrome: how to improve your diagnostic capabilities
As pregnant women and their fetuses are being diagnosed with Congenital Zika Virus Syndrome with increased frequency in Brazil as well as in other Latin American countries, it becomes crucial to educate regional practitioners on the way to make these diagnoses as early as possible. ISUOG Outreach has organised, in collaboration with the World Health Organization (WHO). a free webinar on the subject to provide participants with the necessary tools to differentiate between unaffected and affected fetuses.
