Course description: 

This three-day program provides a solid foundation in the principles and clinical application of volumetric imaging as it applies specifically to women’s healthcare. Day one covers the basics of image acquisition and volume dataset manipulation. On day two the acquisition and manipulation of fetal heart volumes using spatial and temporal image correlation (STIC) and QLAB is reviewed. Lastly on day three, the course discusses the acquisition and manipulation of GYN, first trimester, fetal spine, and fetal head volume datasets.

This course is presented by Leeber Cohen, MD, a clinical associate professor at Northwestern Medical Faculty Foundation, Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology in Chicago, Illinois. Dr. Cohen has published many articles utilizing 3D technology, including the fetal brain, uterine anomalies, sonohysterography, sonosalpingography, and ovarian cancer screening. His clinical research has recently focused on 3D ultrasound as applied to women’s healthcare issues such as ovarian cancer and fetal heart defects.

Prerequisite skills: A thorough knowledge and understanding of 2D Obstetrical Ultrasound fundamentals are required for this program.
