Welcome to register for the One Day Focus “Fetal Imaging and beyond” 2023! This course is particularly interesting for Ob&Gyn doctors, maternal-fetal specialists, ultrasonographers, prenatal genetics and those passionate in these fields.


This year the Course on Fetal Imaging will provide you with the latest information on strategies for optimizing the approach to screening and diagnosis of fetal pathology and discuss treatment options. You will learn about syndromes detection in the first and second trimesters, the role of ultrasound imaging for diagnostic and management of maternal fetal diseases, and fetal malformations.

The course is divided into three sessions. The first session will cover prenatal diagnostics of fetal syndromes: fetal ultrasound and NIPT, US markers of common trisomies, benefits of 3D ultrasound, diagnostic significance of fetal limb anomalies. Afterwards we will talk on ultrasound for the diagnosis and management of maternal-fetal diseases. And the last session will be devoted to a sophisticated approach to fetal malformations: targeted US imaging, MRI-evaluation, and further management options.

Join us on the 16th of September 2023 for the Course “Fetal Imaging and beyond” with video records access for 31 days. Registration is now open!

"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."
