Conference Purpose

The purpose of this conference is to increase the knowledge and skills of sonographers and physicians who care for the mother or child with possible congenital heart disease. The first day will focus on the importance of ultrasound screening for heart defects in the fetus and the impact of extracardiac anomalies on the fetal heart. The second day will focus on more in-depth imaging of conotruncal defects such as DORV, transposition of the great arteries, and truncus arteriosus. This day will also include hands on imaging, pathology and a parent panel. These sessions will increase the expertise of participants on imaging these anomalies and will also add to their knowledge of the expected courses and outcomes in different types of conotruncal defects.
