Melbourne First Trimester Symposium

4-5 May 2019


The Melbourne first trimester ultrasound symposium presents a panel of experts who will take you through the A-Z of fetal malformation diagnosis from 8-11 weeks gestation. The course has a strong clinical focus addressing the multi-disciplinary approach to counselling and management of a wide variety of fetal malformation sequences across all organ systems. Specific attention will be focused on new technologies, the role of NIPT, banded karyotype, microarray and exom sequencing in both screening and diagnosis.

The objectives of the course include the following:

* Address the basic and advanced approaches to sonographic diagnosis of minor and major fetal malformation.
* Take an in-depth look at the guidelines and clinical practice for the sonographic assessment of the normal fetus at 11-14 weeks.
* Build a knowledge set of the common and rare anomaly sequences which can be identified during the first trimester - Over 500 video clip sequences will be presented.
* Provide guidelines on how to implement new screening strategies for aneuploidy, preeclampsia and fetal malformation.
* Discuss the role of non-invasive prenatal screening, banded karyotype, microarray and exom sequencing in the current era.
* Provide interactive learning supported by on line teaching cases.
