The organisers have combined hands-on scanning sessions with online lectures and hands-on scanning videos to provide a comprehensive approach to learning OB GYN ultrasound.
Students will receive immediate access to online lectures to watch at their convenience before the hands on session. These lectures include foundational information in ultrasound physics, anatomy, scanning technique, pathology and terminology. Access to these lectures will be for one year.
The hands on scanning session will take place at the organisers` Monterey, CA training center. All scanning sessions include first through third trimester patients. Transvaginal scanning on actual patients is included. The organisers do have a phantom for practice but they feel that scanning on live patients provides the most benefit in learning the technique for endovaginal ultrasound. The organisers cover the first trimester exam including CRL measurements, M-mode, uterine position, ovaries and adnexa. The second trimester exam review depends on class demand. Third trimester growth, biophysical, AFI, cervical length, and placenta location are included.
