It is a course addressed to gynecologists – obstetricians. The course aims to develop examination skills in the field of ultrasonography by applying the techniques of circulatory system mapping together with assessing of the blood flow spectrum. The course includes issues concerning physiology and vessel pathology of female generative organs as well as assessing the function of the maternal-fetal unit and the central fetal circulation in individual trimesters of pregnancy. During theoretical and practical classes, the participants will learn about the techniques of color Doppler, power Doppler, bidirectional power Doppler, pulsed wave Doppler, continuous wave Doppler and the methods of non-Doppler flow mapping.
The issues are presented in an accessible and, above all, practical way. Also, they are supported by numerous ultrasound images. During the course, the instructors pay a special attention to an incorrect examination technique, which may be frequently observed, and which not only makes it difficult to interpret the results, but also may distort them.
The course includes lectures with presentation of ‘live’ examinations in the 1st, 2nd and 3rd trimester of pregnancy, as well as the presentation of applying Doppler techniques in gynecology. Practical part is preceded by an appropriate introduction to the issues, which shall be performed during the work with a patient. Practical classes are run in groups of 5-6 people in a medical centre with participation of female patients invited by Lesser Poland Workshops in Ultrasound. Each examination is verified by the physician conducting the classes, each patient receives a report of a performed examination.
The classes are taught by dr. Agnieszka Nocuń and dr. Marcin Wiecheć – clinicians, enthusiasts of ultrasonography and its teaching. Each participant receives a colored course book including a summary of presented lectures with about 100 pages of high quality images and useful comments.
