International Symposium & Hands-On Learning
The 2019 Symposium and Hands-On Learning event in Baltimore, MD, once again brings together an internationally recognized, multidisciplinary faculty to present two full-days of state–of-the-art presentations and discussions. The half-day event will feature live imaging demonstrations, thus maximizing the didactic and hands-on learning experience.
This Symposium will provide clear, concise real-life tips and information about fetal cardiac defects and screening examinations. Evidence-based information will be used to explain important diagnostic and screening modalities for predicting defect risks. Presentations will discuss topics on fetal cardiac evaluation in the NIPT era; fetal cardiac evaluation in the second trimester; cardiac defects and extra cardiac anomalies, and common problems that may occur during the pregnancy. The most common postoperative complications, such as feeding problems, will be elaborated upon during the discussion on surgical outcomes of congenital heart defects (CHD).
