ULTRASOUND SOLUTIONS CORP. is pleased to welcome back Jane J.K. Burns, AS, RT, RDMS, MFM Ultrasound Manager at Texas Children’s Hospital/Pavilion for Women, for a detailed discussion of the current AIUM image guidelines in the evaluation of the fetal heart.
Optimal sonographic images of the fetal heart are critical to adequately assess cardiac structures, function, and potentially, perinatal outcomes. Although evaluating the fetal heart can be a challenging task, by following the latest imaging protocols, thoroughness can be achieved. This presentation will provide an overview of the most recent AIUM image guidelines for the evaluation of the fetal heart, both for the Standard Anatomy scan and the Detailed Anatomy scan. (Approved for 1 SDMS CME credit, provided one is present for the entire event)
Course Objectives:Upon completion of this educational activity, the participant will be able to:
Explain the normal blood flow through the fetal heart and into the great arteries
Describe the morphological differences of the 4 chambers of the heart
List updated image requirements for fetal heart evaluation, as outlined in the AIUM guidelines
State image optimization techniques when evaluating the fetal heart

Important update from the SDMS:
SDMS no longer allows its CME providers to issue Partial Credit for attendance. If you join late or leave early, the SDMS will no longer permit us to award partial pro-rated credit.
Therefore, from now on, in order to receive CME credit, you must be in attendance for the ENTIRE event via your own unique Zoom link that Zoom emailed to you when you registered. Then, and only then, will USC be able to award you any credit. So, please be prompt and attentive to the time schedule. We apologize for any inconvenience, but again, this is a new SDMS policy we must abide by. Thank you for understanding.
