ASM 2019 Intermediate Gynaecological Ultrasound Course


This is a practical simulation based ultrasound course focusing specifically on gynaecological ultrasound, in particular transvaginal scanning. The aim of the course is to cover key aspects of the RCOG curriculum module ‘Intermediate ultrasound in gynaecology’.  These include ultrasound assessments of the normal female pelvis, uterine fibroids, endometrial abnormalities, ovarian lesions and assessment of pelvic pain. In addition, the day will include a re-cap on the principles of ultrasound, examination technique, image optimization and a hands-on session on how to get the most out of your machine settings. The course is aimed at trainees who are undergoing or have completed the basic ultrasound modules who wish to proceed with the intermediate gynaecology ultrasound. It is also aimed at allied health professional wishing to develop their knowledge and skills in gynaecological ultrasound.

There will be opportunities for delegates to complete OSATs assessments of their choice using the ultrasound simulators.

Places are limited to 16 delegates (13 for Doctors and 3 for Nurses), hence early registration is recommended.

A number of places will be available for nurses to attend this course.  The objectives will be to understand the principles of ultrasound and how it can help their gynaecological practice.  There will also be an opportunity to have hands on the simulators and learn about the machine settings to optimize the image.
