Course Objectives

Upon completion of this conference, the participant will be able to:

  • Demonstrate how to perform an optimal fetal cardiac and anatomical exam by watching live scanning by a sonographer

  • Differentiate abnormally developing early pregnancies from normal based on sonographic correlation of anatomic findings
