Dear colleagues,

I would like to invite you to Nottingham to join us for this unique and exciting course dedicated to 3D gynecological ultrasound from 7th - 9th June and 8th - 10th November 2018--. The course, which has been running for over ten years now, has received excellent feedback and comes highly recommended. The course aims to be intellectually stimulating and rewarding for each and every one of you regardless of your expertise and knowledge. The course has been designed specifically for those of you who practice gynecological ultrasound and want to learn more about advanced scanning techniques particularly 3D and Doppler ultrasound but is also suitable for beginners and improvers. Its' bespoke nature allows us to personalize the course for all who attend so do let us know what you hope to achieve either before or when you arrive.

The aims of the course, which has distinct practical and clinical components, include:

Establishing the basic principles of gynecological ultrasound:

  • Getting the best out of your machine
  • Assessment of the pelvis with 2D and Doppler ultrasound

Qualitative and quantitative 3D ultrasound:

  • 3D data acquisition and image display
  • Manual and automatic quantification of 3D data
  • The practical applications and clinical relevance of 3D

Hands-on practical sessions:

  • Live scanning (using a gynecology phantom)
  • 4D View: basic and advanced applications
  • 4D View: clinical cases and worked examples

Lectures on:
A large proportion of the course involves working with 4D View. Each delegate will be given a USB or a CD, which contains a series of 3D datasets that we will look through together as a group during the hands-on practical sessions to provide working examples of the topics discussed. You will become confident with the software and leave being able to use the different display options and perform reliable measurements of volume and vascularity. You can assess your progress in an informal quiz on the final day! We also have Voluson machines and a gynecological phantom to practice 'live' scanning.

The course is held at the Crowne Plaza Nottingham, a modern, four-star hotel in the heart of the city within walking distance of the main shopping and business districts. Please note that whilst we offer advice and help with your transport and accommodation these are not covered in the course fee and will be added to your invoice.

We are happy that prominent scientists and clinical experts like Prof. Rabih Chaoui, PD Dr. Kai-Sven Heling, Dr. Bernard Benoit, Prof. Horst Steiner, and Dr. N. Raine Fenning have agreed to lecture at those courses and are willing to share their experience in theoretical and practical sessions, including live scanning on Voluson units.
