If you still have problems with the basics of the heart examination and diagnostics of its typical defects despite undergoing courses in this field or if you are just starting the adventure with fetal sonography then our course is for you. In our opinion, it is reasonable to begin the training in OB/GYN ultrasound from the fetal heart. The form of the course is based upon an advanced, ergonomic examination technique coming from the experiences of the volume ultrasound imaging and the MRI examination. Abnormalities are presented according to their characteristics in order for the participants to skillfully capture them. The course allows understanding of the vast majority of the typical images. The subject of the heart defects is discussed together with an experienced paediatric cardiac surgeon, who also presents the issues of prognosis and treatment possibilities. We care about discussing this matter in a simple and approachable way so as to eliminate the concerns connected with the fetal heart examination. We are focusing much attention on practical classes, which include examinations in the first and the second trimester of pregnancy. An open form of the live examinations helps in understanding of the most effective way to use an ultrasound scanner in examination of the normal and abnormal heart. We present the session of live examinations concerning defects with a cardiac surgeon commentary. Every participant receives a colourful textbook with high resolution images including about 200 pages of key comments.

Participants receive tasks to accomplish. Each examination is verified by the tutors.
