This three-day course will focus on fetal growth and will take place in Delhi, India in April 2020.
The past decade has seen an unprecedented change in concepts in fetal growth and placental biology. The influence of this change has profoundly altered the way in which clinical obstetrics is practiced today. The expert, the practitioner and the post graduate are often lost in the explosion of knowledge that is hitting us all the time. And, growth restriction has tremendous implication on perinatal events, neonatal and childhood development and adult disease.
The time is ripe to understand these newer concepts indepth and translate these into daily practice. This is precisely what the Fetal Growth World Congress 2020 has as its agenda.
Do come. Learn. Interact. Feel good.

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."
