This ISUOG Educational course is aimed at any medical practitioner or sonographer using ultrasound as part of the management of women with complications in early pregnancy or with pelvic pain. Since ultrasound is never used in isolation, the course aims to extend beyond technical aspects and to place ultrasound investigation in the context of overall clinical care.
At the end of this course delegates can expect to have gained:
- a detailed understanding of the use of ultrasound in the diagnosis and management of common complications of Early Pregnancy,
- an understanding of a clear and systematic approach to investigating pelvic pain with ultrasound and the pitfalls in excluding endometriosis,
- an appreciation of some of current clinical dilemmas in gynaecological ultrasound through the exploration of interactive video, 3D volumes and live scanning examples.
George Condous is Associate Professor in Obstetrics and Gynaecology at Sydney Medical School Nepean, University of Sydney and head of Gynaecological Ultrasound and Advanced Endosurgery at Nepean Hospital. In 2009, he was awarded his Doctorate in Medicine (MD), University of London, for his thesis entitled: "The management of pregnancies of unknown location and the development of new mathematical models to predict outcome". He has edited three books including the "Handbook of Early Pregnancy Care", published over 100 papers in international journals and is internationally renowned for his work in Early Pregnancy. He is the current Editor for the Australasian Journal for Ultrasound in Medicine (AJUM), Associate Editor for Gynecologic Obstetric Investigation, which is a European based journal, as well as an invited speaker at the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynaecology (ISUOG) Scientific meeting in Los Angeles 2013.
