The mid-trimester anomaly scan or targeted imaging for fetal anomalies is a key component of fetal care. It is a screening examination done universally in all pregnancies between 18 and 22 weeks of gestation. The main objective is to systematically study the various fetal organ systems through standard planes of section. The caregiver should be well versed in the ultrasound technique and be able to recognize normal and abnormal anatomy. The module titled 'MID-TRIMESTER DIAGNOSIS OF CONGENITAL ANOMALIES' features 18 lecture discussions stretching to 32 to 33 hours. They are designed to extensively cover common and rare anomalies of all the fetal organ systems that may be encountered in practice. Profusely illustrated with case studies, still pictures, video clips, autopsy and neonatal pictures, each lecture will enable the participant to understand the anomalies as well as deal with the differential diagnosis. Ultrasound image interpretation by pattern recognition is largely facilitated by such an approach. The genetic basis and the investigations necessary are included in the discussion.
This course caters to practicing sonologists, gynaecologists and radiologists and those who are training to become practitioners in Fetal Medicine and Obstetric Ultrasound, as well as postgraduate medical students in these fields.
Dr. B.S.Rama Murthy has over 34 years of ultrasound practice and has profound experience from the large number of cases seen by him, many at a time when detection of anomalies was primarily in the mid-trimester. He is popularly known for his crystal-clear concepts and systematic teaching methodology, and is a much sort after faculty at conferences.
