Mediscan Systems takes great pride and pleasure in announcing the Fetal Echo and Perinatal Cardiac Morphology Symposium to be held on the 20th and 21st of January 2018 at Hotel Accord Metropolitan, Chennai.
The burden of congenital cardiac defects in India is huge with an estimated incidence of 8 per 1000 live births which means that each of us, whether we are involved in the clinical care of the feto-maternal unit (obstetricians), imaging of the fetus (sonologists, radiologists), postnatal care (neonatologists, pediatric cardiologists), or in the postmortem diagnosis (fetal pathologists), would encounter a fetus with congenital cardiac defect. This symposium is meant for all of us.
In prenatal medicine, an accurate diagnosis of fetal cardiac defect is essential to plan the correct perinatal management such as place of delivery, timely involvement of the pediatric cardiac team, and more importantly to provide adequate information to the prospective parents regarding the perinatal management and outcome. However, prenatal detection of congenital heart defects has been low as compared to defects in other systems, probably due to the complexity of the organ’s anatomy and the additional imaging expertise that is required. A thorough understanding of the normal anatomy and the pathological morphology enhances the fetal specialist’s ability to correlate the knowledge with the image thus improving the diagnostic skills. This is the crux of this unique symposium – understanding the cardiac anatomy to improve your diagnostic skills.
Professor Anderson from U.K, who has a lifetime experience in teaching cardiac morphology leads this symposium. As he takes us through the journey of comprehending the cardiac morphology, stalwarts in fetal cardiac imaging from various states of India would widen our knowledge on fetal heart imaging thus creating a perfect blend of pathology and imaging on the same stage.
For the knowledge-hungry neurons, there cannot be a better feast. As for the gustatory nucleus’ requirements, we have the best in the business serving you throughout the conference. And, by the way, January is the best time to visit this historic city where there is a little interesting story behind every landmark.
We invite you to join us in this unique academic feast and in turn improve your patient care!
