We are pleased to present Jeff Gunderson, MS, RDMS, RVT, RT, Program Director, Diagnostic Medical Sonography Program, St. Cloud Technical & Community College for a discussion on the use of ultrasound for evaluating cystic structures imaged on an Obstetric exam.
The imaging of cystic structures during a sonographic obstetric examination can cause confusion if anatomy and pathology are not completely understood. In this lecture, the audience will be exposed to normal and abnormal fetal anatomy, with an emphasis on cystic structures seen routinely during obstetric sonographic assessment. (Approved for 1 SDMS CME credit)
Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant will be able to:
- Recognize normal cystic-appearing structures seen on an obstetric survey scan
- Identify abnormal cystic-appearing structures when present on a routine obstetric scan
- Improve pathology recognition skills during sonographic obstetrical evaluations
