Fetal Cardiology Course- 7Th October Bristol 2022:

The course is aimed at paediatric cardiologists, sonographers, fetal medicine consultants and subspecialty trainees, paediatricians, neonatologists and radiologists and anyone with an interest in fetal cardiology.   It will provide a comprehensive and systematic evaluation of normal fetal cardiac anatomy as well as assessment of cardiac function, and rhythm.

We will also cover the diagnosis of major cardiac abnormalities such as septal defects, left and right heart obstructive lesions and aortic arch abnormalities.  At the end of the course we will have an interactive session with rare and challenging cases . We will encourage interaction with our faculty and we will provide digital copies of the presentation.
