Second- and Third-Trimester Pregnancy – Part II: Advanced Clinical Module
This Second- and Third-Trimester Pregnancy – Part II: Advanced Clinical Module provides an in-depth review reinforcing the use of fetal biometry to evaluate fetal development of singleton and multiple pregnancies, weight discrepancies, amniotic fluid volume indexes, and maximal vertical pocket identification during the second- and third-trimesters of pregnancy. Sonographic assessment of fetal presentation, placenta, and placental location are discussed. Pathologic conditions such as intrauterine growth restriction and fetal macrosomia are described in detail. This didactic knowledge is assessed with in-module questions and an end-module mastery test. The patented SonoSimulator® will help you develop the requisite hands-on psychomotor skills and cognitive task awareness required to optimally perform second- and third-trimester pregnancy ultrasound.
- Assessment of Extrafetal Anatomy
- Fetal Lie & Presentation
- Twin Gestation
- Placental Evaluation
- Amniotic Fluid Assessment
- Biophysical Profile
- Fetal Weight, Intrauterine Growth Restriction, & Fetal Macrosomia
Hands-On CasesThe SonoSimulator® will help you develop and maintain the critical visuomotor and visuospatial skills that are central to performing second- and third-trimester pregnancy ultrasound. The Second- and Third-Trimester Pregnancy – Part II: Advanced Clinical Module provides you the opportunity to virtually scan real-patient ultrasound cases and learn to assess a spectrum of pregnancy states.
