What you'll learn

Obstetric sonography has become an indispensable tool during pregnancy. The importance and usage of ultrasound in medicine today are ubiquitous and used to study every aspect of the body. It uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the body on to the monitor. It is also called sonography. read more »»

This is similar to sonar and radar which helps in detecting military planes and ships. This is generally used in obstetrical practice and perinatal medicine because it offers important information regarding the morphological and physiological development of the fetus. This can detect major congenital defects peri natally which can help the doctor to analyze the condition of the developing baby well. It can provide very important diagnostic information for developing baby, its organs, heartbeat, neural development, etc..

The second and third trimester is very important periods in which fetal development takes place and the baby grows. Ultrasound scanning can help in detecting any placental pathology, anomalies during development, abortions, etc. This module teaches you how to prepare for and perform an ultrasound examination during the second and third trimesters. Including both Learn and Test modes, the online simulator offers three clinical scenarios that cover different aspects of the second and third-trimester scan protocol.
