8th Annual Fetal Echocardiography Symposium at UCLA: Real-Life Fetal Cardiac Screening - Pearls from the Masters
Activity Details
Activity Name: 8th Annual Fetal Echocardiography Symposium at UCLA: Real-Life Fetal Cardiac Screening - Pearls from the Masters
Needs Assessment:

The Eighth Annual Fetal Echocardiography Symposium at UCLA: “Real-Life Fetal Cardiac Screening - Pearls from the Masters,” happily returning this year to the beautiful and spacious Luskin Conference Center in the heart of the gorgeous UCLA campus, will provide a fully updated, state-of-the-art program, presented by an esteemed multidisciplinary faculty. Retaining its popular clinical focus, the symposium will provide a full day of learning, dedicated to real-life tips and pearls specifically for those physicians and sonographers who perform or interpret fetal cardiac screening examinations. In addition to live scanning on actual patients, 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; the benefits and risks of prenatal diagnosis; how to scan and interpret the four-chamber/right and left ventricular outflow tract/three-vessel views; 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); how to evaluate fetal arrhythmias; and a final quiz and pertinent review with provocative and instructive unknowns.

Course Objectives:

At the conclusion of this intensive, one-day symposium, participants will be able to:

  • Identify current guidelines for fetal cardiac screening
  • Recognize the basic approach to screening low risk pregnancies for fetal heart disease
  • Identify how to optimize image quality and angle of acquisition
  • Acquire and interpret clips of the four-chamber view, outflow tracts, and three-vessel views
  • Evaluate and diagnose fetal arrhythmias
  • Utilize novel tips and pearls of fetal cardiac screening to apply in daily practice
