Supplement your learning for the ISUOG Course 'ISUOG Fetal Cardiology Conference' with the following learning resources.

Join course Director Prof. Simon Meagher for this engaging and informative course. Together with a panel of expert speakers they will dive into the latest discourse surrounding diagnosis and management of fetal cardiac anomalies.This course offers attendees a valuable opportunity to gain a comprehensive understanding of the new advances in this area and learn how to apply them in practical situations.


Learning Objectives:

  • Comprehend the natural history of aortic and pulmonary valve stenosis
  • Grasp technical specifications for imaging semilunar valves
  • Maximize Doppler technologies for flow assessment
  • Learn sonographic diagnosis of valve stenosis severity
  • Value 4D/STIC evaluation for semilunar valves
  • Classify conotruncal cardiac anomalies
  • Differentiate between major conotruncal anomalies
  • Apply ISUOG guidelines for screening conotruncal anomalies
  • Master sonographic diagnosis of TOF with varying stenosis
  • Classify double outlet right ventricle and common arterial trunk
  • Understand antenatal and postnatal management of conotruncal anomalies
  • Recognize spectrum of transposition of great arteries
  • Apply ISUOG guidelines for screening transposition
  • Identify sonographic clues for simple vs. complex TGA
  • Understand management options and prognostication for TGA
  • Value 4D/STIC for TGA diagnosis and prognosis
  • Address counseling needs post antenatal TGA diagnosis
