The meeting will feature half-day sessions (Saturday morning) with small groups focusing on scanning the fetal heart under the supervision of experienced faculty and using various up-to-date machines. The objectives of completing both hands-on sessions are to have participants become familiar with the following:
- Identifying Situs
- Obtain the 4-chamber View
- Demonstrate Pulmonary Venous Flow
- Obtain the Right and Left Ventricular Arterial Outflow Tracts Views
- Obtain the 3-vessel View
- Obtain the Arch Views
- How to use the STIC during heart evaluation
- Dual M- Mode application
In addition, depending on the availability of specific volunteers, there might be an opportunity to scan fetal hearts with cardiac pathology. Those interested in participating in the hands-on workshop will be emailed upon registration in order to specify if they are interested in scanning basic or more complex cases.
Note: Participation in the hands-on Workshop will be available on a first-come, first-served basis as space is limited.
