An ISUOG Advanced Course
Hot topics & controversies in feto-maternal medicine
2nd edition

Under the patronage of

Presentation

The course has two components.

The first part focuses on the sonographic expert diagnosis of complex CNS and heart malformations since the 1st trimester. These organs are difficult to explore, hence the need for “how to…” sessions in order to reach a final diagnosis and make as detailed as possible prognosis assessment. Live Demos of clinical cases will thoroughly illustrate the technique for assessing the various organs mentioned above.

 

The second part of the course includes debates on some hot topics of Feto-Maternal Medicine, such as Preterm delivery and p-PROM management, late IUGR, prophylaxis to prevent  trombophilia and NTDs. An interactive session on pre-term birth will allow the audience to share their experience and discuss with keynote experts.

Prof. Dario Paladini
