Obstetrics CNS session Thursday 11 June at 10.30

Prenatal diagnosis of CNS anomalies is one of the main justifications for the use of ultrasound in pregnancy. The incidence of CNS anomalies in a low risk population is close to 1 % and prenatal diagnosis has an important impact. The international society of ultrasound in obstetrics and gynecology (ISUOG) has published guidelines for CNS scanning, and three transverse planes are recommended for the basic scanning; the transventricular plane, the transthalamic plane and the transcerebellar plane. Aurora Røset is an expert in fetal medicine from the center for fetal medicine in Trondheim, Norway, and she will present the basic scanning through a live demonstration and also have a lecture about diagnosis and follow up of lateral ventriculomegaly.
