Course Description

This course is designed to provide practitioners with a practical problem-solving approach to sonographic imaging of the female pelvis, including the use of 3-dimensional (3D) ultrasound. The course is intended to assist learners with patient care decisions by bridging the gap between sonographic findings and clinical interpretation. Course presenters will outline a practical approach to evaluating the patient with pelvic pain, abnormal bleeding, and pelvic mass. Interpretation of the sonographic appearance of the endometrium in premenopausal and postmenopausal patients as well as the differential diagnosis of adnexal masses will be discussed. Course topics will also include descriptions of uterine anomalies and their importance in fertility. Ectopic and failed pregnancy will also be discussed.

Target Audience

This course is designed to meet the needs of physicians and other health care providers who use gynecologic sonography. This activity addresses the following learner attributes: · Patient care and procedural skills · Medical knowledge · Practice-based learning and improvement This course is designed to change competence and performance.

Course Objectives

· To provide a practical approach to the evaluation of the patient with pelvic pain and abnormal bleeding. · To provide a practical problem-solving approach to sonography of the pelvis with emphasis on imaging but also incorporating clinical aspects. · To evaluate a pelvic mass systematically and arrive at a specific diagnosis or short differential diagnosis (including ovarian tumors, benign and malignant, as well as tubal and nongynecologic causes of pelvic masses). · To discuss the normal and abnormal appearance of the endometrium in premenopausal and postmenopausal patients and attempt to standardize the diagnostic criteria for disease. · To learn about the crucial role of 3D ultrasound in pelvic imaging. · To work on looking at unknown cases and arriving at a diagnosis. · To learn about the appearance of uterine anomalies and their importance in fertility. · This program will also include some information about ectopic and failed pregnancy.
