The third edition of the course has three components.
The first part focuses on the sonographic expert diagnosis of complex CNS and cardiac malformations, concentrating especially on those anomalies or sonographic aspects that may be responsible for false positive and negative diagnoses.
The second part addresses the modifications of current diagnostic ultrasound protocols that should be implemented thanks to the new advancements in genetics and Artificial Intelligence.
The third part deals – as in previous editions – with feto-maternal important conditions, which in the present edition is maternal diabetes and its effects on the pregnancy and the fetus.
A final session is included focusing on the state of the art in the hormonal treatment of women’s conditions.
