Chicago OB/GYN Ultrasound Symposium 2018

September 28, 2018 to September 30, 2018
Ultrasound is arguably the most commonly used diagnostic procedure in obstetrics and gynecology.  American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine recommends accreditation of practices for standardization of examinations as well as following strict guidelines for clinicians performing of various studies, both obstetric and gynecologic. In addition, several pathologies, such as skeletal and cardiac anomalies are difficult to recognize and assess. Vaginal and uterine bleeding is one of the most common complaints encountered by clinicians in daily practice. This activity will deliver information that will provide new opportunities for clinicians to improve patient care and achieve better outcomes in pregnancy or when gynecologic problems exist.
