Supplement your learning for the ISUOG Education Course "Advance fetal neurosonography: When do I need to refer for fetal MRI?"

Thank you for joining the ISUOG Education Course Advanced fetal neurosonography: When do I need to refer for fetal MRI? taking place in London on Friday 7th and Saturday 8th December 2018. During this two-day course you will develop your knowledge of fetal neurosonographic examinations before and after 20 weeks and learn advanced MRI techniques and their applications in clinical practice.  

Explore the topic 

In order to make the most of this learning experience and help you achieve your learning objectives, we have prepared a path to guide you from the essentials to our course’s topics through ISUOG resources. The material below will take you from the most basic aspects to a more comprehensive view of fetal neurosonography, and some may even grant you CME points.
