The Fetal Echocardiography series provides a comprehensive resource for physicians, sonographers and healthcare
professionals interested in learning more about or integrating fetal echocardiography into their practice. Beginning
with a review of the fetal cardiac anatomy, interactive didactic lectures cover a plethora of fetal cardiac
pathologies as well as focusing on how to recognize the sick fetus, how to implement a multi-disciplinary approach
to perinatal management and, when applicable, surgical options to consider. Since the ability to recognize
pathology is based on a solid understanding of normal anatomy and physiology, we have included a ScanLab which
demonstrates the normal fetal cardiac anatomy and physiology, including color and spectral Doppler. In addition
to scanning techniques and protocols, Dr. Gardiner provides technical tips throughout the ScanLab to aid in image
optimization. Interactive CheckPoints are integrated throughout the series to reinforce key concepts, aiding in
maximum retention of the content presented. As with all Pegasus Lectures’ online courses, the participant is able
to create a customized review.
