Supplement your learning for the ISUOG Course 'Doppler and maternal vascular imaging' with the following learning resources.
Join us via livestream for our problem-based course 'Doppler and maternal vascular imaging' on Friday 24 July 2020. Chaired by Prof. Christoph Lees and Prof. Asma Khalil, the course will bring together two important imaging themes: maternal and fetal Doppler, and maternal cardiovascular function.
- Understand the basic principles for a Doppler ultrasound
- Investigate the management of FGR
- Explore the methodology of vascular imaging
- Learn the clinical relevance of maternal vascular imaging
Explore the topic before you attend our course:
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.

"I am committed to supporting ISUOG’s membership growth and providing educational opportunities in underrepresented regions of the world. I have contributed to the Society’s scientific program, speaking at their Intensive education courses and even running two Approved courses of my own, which have become popular in their own right. One of these courses takes place in Egypt, the other in the UK, where there is a shortage in opportunities for basic training in the field. Through these initiatives I have introduced more than 70 new members to the Society in the last year alone and strive to continue delivering ISUOG’s resources in areas where there is most in need."
