Location: Royal Hospital

Cost: US $260

Timings: 08:15 - 16:30


This is mainly a hands-on workshop where candidates get hands on training on how to perform basic obstetric scanning as well as fetal echo and brief overview about 3D/4D scanning.

During the workshop candidates will get hands on training on how to perform 1st trimester, anomaly, growth and doppler scans.

Learning Objectives

On completion of this workshop candidates are expected to be familiar with:

  • Setting up the ultrasound machine
  • The correct orientation of ultrasound images andwhich knobs are important to ensure optimal imaging
  • Other technical aspects of ultrasound examinations including the 6 steps approach and probe movements
  • Understanding the basic principles related to scanning skills for assessing anomaly, growth, doppler and fetal echo
