Collaborative Program Co-sponsored By

Fetal Heart Screening for Congenital Heart Disease Course

The purpose of this activity is to improve the skill and confidence of sonographers and physicians in the performance and evaluation of screening fetal heart views and images, in order to improve prenatal detection of congenital heart disease. The ‘hands-on’ element builds skill in image acquisition and the didactic portion assists with the interpretation of images.

This course introduces a two-track approach to target the needs of sonographers and interpreting physicians:

  • Track 1 provides hands-on scanning training for sonographers and interested physicians.
  • Track 2 (for physicians and interested sonographers) provides patient counseling techniques and an interactive case study session focused on interpretation.

Overall Conference Objective

The purpose of this activity is to improve the skill and confidence of sonographers and physicians in the performance and evaluation of screening fetal heart views and images, in order to improve prenatal detection of congenital heart disease. The ‘hands-on’ element builds skill in image acquisition and the didactic portion assists with the interpretation of images.

This course introduces a two-track approach to target the needs of sonographers and interpreting physicians.

  • Track 1 provides hands-on scanning training for sonographers and interested physicians.
  • Track 2 (for physicians and interested sonographers) provides patient counseling techniques and an interactive case study session focused on interpretation.

Course Objectives

At the conclusion of this activity, participants should be able to:

  • Review the cardiac embryology.
  • Review congenital heart disease, the presentation, outcomes, and risk factors.
  • Discuss how early detection of CHD can impact outcomes.
  • Review basic extended screening images of the fetal heart and list technical considerations for performing the four chamber, outflow tract, and three vessel views.
  • Perform with supervision the extended cardiac screen, which consists of the four chamber, outflow tract and three vessel fetal cardiac views.
  • Detect Congenital Heart Disease (CHD) by incorporating a comprehensive four chamber along with outflow tract and the three vessel views into routine obstetric anomaly scans.
  • Review basic echocardiography views.
