Fernandez Hospital’s Department of Fetal Medicine conducted a hands-on Doppler Course in Clinical Obstetrics on 10th,11th and 12th December 2017. The course aimed at those wanting to introduce Doppler into their obstetric ultrasound practice and those already practicing obstetric Doppler but wanting a better understanding of various aspects of the subject.
The course was coordinated by Head of Fetal Medicine, Dr. Suseela Vavilala. The faculty consisted of Fetal Medicine consultants Dr. Geeta Kolar, Dr. Aparna Kuppa, Dr. Saritha and Dr. Arati Singh. Delegates from all over the country appreciated the faculty and the well-coordinated course with an overwhelming “excellent” feedback.
Doppler has numerous indications in obstetrics like impaired placentation and its complications of pre-eclampsia, intrauterine growth restriction and perinatal death; assessment of the fetal circulation is essential in the better understanding of the pathophysiology of a wide range of pathological pregnancies and their clinical management.
