Canon Medical Systems UK together with Clinical Diagnostics Educational Ltd. recently ran a one day course on “The increasing impact of ultrasound in general gynaecology and reproductive medicine – clinical and technical aspects.” Held at Bromsgrove Hilton Hotel in Bromsgrove, attendees voted it an excellent venue, describing the day as “well organised with brilliant staff running the course.”
Aimed at experienced sonographers and clinical and nursing personnel working in the field of medical ultrasound, the course offered an intensive lecture programme that reviewed current scanning practice in gynaecology and other associated areas of pregnancy and women’s healthcare. It also highlighted recent developments in scanning technology and their impact in terms of ultrasound diagnosis and clinical management.
In addition to the lecture programme and practical demonstrations, the course was also designed to encourage discussion and the exchange of views and experience within the group. This aspect of the day was much appreciated by delegates, who welcomed the opportunity to catch up with other sonographers and discuss work issues.
Lecture topics included a review of recent advances in transvaginal ultrasound imaging, and a review of causes, investigation and current management of abnormal uterine bleeding. Ultrasound of the endometricum, together with gynaecological oncology and post menopausal studies was covered, together with the value of 3D transvaginal ultrasound in early pregnancy assessment and first trimester screening. Another topic explored current clinical trends in the investigation and treatment of recurrent miscarriage, together with a lecture on advanced 3D virtual imaging in reproductive gynaecology.
With positive feedback from all the delegates, one delegate commented, “I found the course extremely interesting and thought-provoking. I have never used 3D IV scanning and very little colour Doppler for gynae scanning, but can definitely see the benefits of using both. I have really enjoyed the day and have gained a lot of new information.” A second delegate added “Excellent information conveyed at a good pace. I have been given much food for thought to apply to my current working practice.”
