Find out about the ISUOG Virtual International Symposium scientific program, created by leading international obstetrics and gynecology professionals to educate and inspire delegates to use ultrasound together with other technologies to improve the lifelong health of women and babies.

The International Symposium Co-chairs, ISUOG Symposium Advisory Group and a number of local experts from Calgary, Alberta, Canada and North America, have worked together to design a scientific program packed with the latest in obstetric and gynecological imaging, to enable delegates to improve their practical imaging and diagnostic skills, and thereby to improve the lifelong health of women and babies. Scientific sessions will run simultaneously, providing 2 streams of content over 2 days. Highlights include:
• Obstetrics: the first trimester, beyond the routine mid-trimester fetal ultrasound scan, screening to improve pregnancy outcomes, fetal growth and health, ultrasound in labor, and more
• Gynecology: ectopic pregnancy, miscarriage, endometriosis, menopause, ovarian tumours, tubal and uterine pathology, and more
• Special sessions include those on advanced imaging/MRI, fetal therapy and COVID

Scientific Committee, UOG Editorial Board

Professor Liona Poon is an Academic Subspecialist in Maternal Fetal Medicine, devoted in improving maternal and fetal health. She has had a prolific research output throughout her clinical and research posts, including over 130 peer-reviewed publications in high impact international journals. In the last 10 years she has focused her research on establishing a programme for effective early prediction and prevention of preeclampsia, a major cause of maternal and perinatal morbidity and mortality. With her success in developing a first-trimester prediction model for preeclampsia using maternal risk factors, ultrasound, blood pressure and biochemical markers, and on Aspirin prophylaxis against preeclampsia, her goal in the next 10 years is to improve obstetric care worldwide, through clinical research and education.
