Cervical cancer is the fourth most common cancer among women globally, with more than 660,000 new cases and nearly 350,000 deaths reported in 2022 alone¹.

Despite being one of the most preventable cancers, cervical cancer remains a significant global health challenge. And this is especially true in middle-income and lower-resource countries, where nearly 90% of cases occur. However, if it is detected early, and managed well, cervical cancer responds well to treatment.

In areas with limited access to healthcare resources and screening, the opportunities for early detection and timely treatment can be more challenging. Fortunately, ultrasound and advances in medical imaging are proving to be formidable tools in the fight against cervical cancer.

Ultrasound scanning has a crucial part in the detection, diagnosis, and management of the disease. Its versatility and accessibility make it invaluable for clinicians worldwide, particularly so in resource-constrained settings where more costly imaging technologies may be impractical or scarce.

Part of ISUOG’s mission is to widely share knowledge and expertise. To help address the resources gap, and empower clinicians in their efforts to combat cervical cancer, we are offering our advanced course on cervical cancer for free, to clinicians working in lower-resource countries, until 31 May 2024.

Advanced Course on Cervical Cancer

This new course is part of our growing collection of online advanced courses and will eventually form part of our Advanced Training Curriculum. The online cervical cancer course provides comprehensive training on the use of ultrasound for cervical cancer. It aims to equip clinicians with the additional knowledge and skills to leverage ultrasound effectively and improve outcomes for women’s health worldwide.
