This course aims to give participants an update in the most modern techniques for the diagnosis of various gynecological pathologies, mainly endometriosis and infertility related diseases; and give the theoretical basis for the standardization and systematization of ultrasound procedures in their clinical practice.
Gynecological ultrasound has undergone a remarkable development in recent years, so that today it is considered a reliable method in all age groups which allows to explore all parts of the body, with numerous validated and established applications, especially during the reproductive years. Recent advances have turned ultrasound into a real-time multiparameter analysis technique that allows the morphological assessment not only of the uterus and ovaries, but also other structures of the pelvis that are commonly forgotten, such as the bladder, ureters, rectum, or pelvic floor, etc. Likewise, the continuous technological improvement of the equipment, in constant development, has also contributed to making ultrasound a competitive technique compared to other imaging techniques such as computed tomography or magnetic resonance, traditionally considered superior, but which have now been matched or even surpassed by new ultrasound techniques, especially in the diagnosis of endometriosis, adenomyosis, uterine malformations, or pelvic floor dysfunctions, among others.
On the other hand, although it is true that ultrasound equipment has become indispensable instruments in any gynecological practice, it is also known that the offer of training in the field of gynecological ultrasound is very scarce and the training of most specialists is mainly empirical, resulting in a deficit in the standardization and systematization of ultrasound procedures, as well as a lack of updating in the most modern techniques for the diagnosis of various gynecological pathologies. We have the conviction that improvement through medical education will have a great impact on the health of millions of women in our region. That is why we present this international event in which we will address a series of topics of great relevance in the specialty with a program of great scientific value that we hope will be of great interest to all delegates.
