This year scientific program is well prepared by Prof. Chaoui, Prof. Abuhamad and Prof. Benoit! 21 days access to the Course video records will be provided. Modern prenatal diagnosis relies on high resolution ultrasound and the detection of details in addition to the knowledge on a large number of fetal diseases and syndromes. This course has two parts, the morning part will be discussing the first trimester ultrasound and the afternoon part will pick up single anomalies’ groups in the 2nd and 3rd trimester and discuss each of these in detail!


Join us on the 16th of July 2022 for the ISUOG Approved Course “EXPERT FETAL ULTRASOUND” with video records access for 21 days.

Dr. Ashok Khurana commenced his medical studies at the All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, India in 1975, and, after completing his MBBS went on to do a post graduate (MD) degree in Radiology which he completed in 1984. During this period he had the unique experience of establishing the ultrasound services at this premier institution under the guidance of Prof. Sneh Bhargava who is widely regarded as the “guru” of contemporary medical imaging in India. It was during this time that he also had the opportunity to train at the ultrasound department of the Herlev Hospital in Denmark under the tutelage of Prof. Hans Henrik Holm, a pioneer in ultrasound technology and its medical applications. Armed with this experience he went on to establish a private medical facility in New Delhi, with the vision of providing world class ultrasound services. Read more.

"In a country where more mothers and newborns die than anywhere else in the world, there has been an increasing need to incorporate quality ultrasound in antenatal care. It has been heartening to s ee the change in the way ultrasound scans are now carried out in many parts of my country. ISUOG’s education has played a major role in this. I have drawn hugely on the name and academic content of ISUOG to run major ISUOG events in New Delhi, Bengaluru, Hyderabad, Kochi and Mumbai as well as smaller, personalised courses. This has included professing ultrasound guidelines, projecting guidelines for the appropriate use of Doppler studies and spreading awareness of ISUOG's online academic content. Future direction includes taking the mission of ISUOG to the remotest areas, increasing awareness of the utility of ISUOG educational material in gynecological ultrasound, and increasing the visibility of the White Journal."
