Advanced Topics in OB-GYN Ultrasound

Learning Objective(s)
After completing this activity, you should be able to:

  • List indications of when the addition of 3-dimensional (3D) ultrasound is useful and often the optimal imaging modality;
  • Describe the American Society for Reproductive Medicine (ASRM) and European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology (ESHRE) classification systems of Mullerian duct anomalies;
  • Discuss how 3D ultrasound volumes are manipulated to obtain clinically relevant information;
  • Assess the association of abnormal Doppler flow velocity patterns in the umbilical arteries in either twin and right ventricular outflow tract abnormalities in the recipient twin in twin-twin transfusion syndrome cases;
  • Identify fundamental differences between lethal and nonlethal skeletal dysplasias;
  • Recognize subtle imaging features of the abnormal skeleton;
  • Review the basics of the molecular underpinnings of skeletal dysplasias;
  • Analyze the ultrasound characteristics and clinical importance of each classification, which might contribute to the diagnosis and prognosis of Herlyn-Werner-Wunderlich syndrome;
  • Discuss new AIUM practice parameters for the first-trimester detailed exam;
  • Review sonographic views that comprise a detailed early exam; and
  • Summarize pathology amenable to diagnosis, including pitfalls specific to early gestational age.
