Luskin Conference Center
The 8th Annual Fetal Echocardiography Symposium at UCLA will provide a fully updated, state-of-the-art program, presented by an esteemed multidisciplinary faculty, thereby retaining its clinical focus on expanded fetal cardiac screening. The symposium will provide a full day dedicated to real-life tips and pearls specifically for those physicians and sonographers who perform or interpret fetal cardiac screening examinations. State-of-the-art presentations by international experts in the field will address clinically relevant topics, including but not limited to: what are we (and our guidelines) doing wrong, how to optimize your image, how to use/ interpret cardiac Doppler, how to scan and interpret the four-chamber view/right and left ventricular outflow tracts/three-vessel trachea view, how to recognize and interpret major forms of heart disease (including special clues for the detection of ventricular septal defects, aortic/ pulmonary stenosis, transposition of the great arteries, tetralogy of Fallot, coarctation of the aorta, TAPVR, and many others), and how to evaluate arrythmias.
If you are looking for statistics or reviews of the literature, this course is not for you. But if you are looking to improve your ability to scan or to interpret scans of the fetal heart, this highly popular annual symposium may be among the most valuable courses you will have ever attended.
