Course description including main topics

Ultrasound plays an important role in the management and treatment of women with gynaecological problems and couples with difficulties to conceive. This course aims to give an overview of clinical applications of ultrasound in ART and early pregnancy and provide an opportunity for practical training and education. The idea of running practical workshops allowing practice on different models is a new approach to education and training in ultrasound. The course will focus on controlled ovarian stimulation and hyperstimulation, endometrium and implantation, ovarian and adnexal pathologies, interventional ultrasound, and the quality, safety and educational aspects of ultrasound. The course will promote training and education in ultrasound by using a blended approach and provide an overview on standardised practice in interventional ultrasound. It is organised in collaboration with the British Society of Gynaecological Imaging.
