  • Compare the advantages and disadvantages of transabdominal and transvaginal ultrasound in early pregnancy assessment
  • Outline the scan protocols and transducer placement for ultrasound examination of early pregnancy
  • Describe the sonographic appearances and diagnostic criteria of
    • Normal intrauterine pregnancy
    • Ectopic pregnancy
    • Miscarriage
    • Molar pregnancy
    • Twin pregnancy
    • Pregnancy of unknown location
  • Outline the diagnostic criteria for pregnancy failure
  • Outline a systematic approach to conduct ultrasound assessment of the pelvis using a transabdominal approach
  • Recognise the variable appearance of the uterus and ovaries of the menstrual and life cycles
  • Discuss the utility of ultrasound in evaluating retained products of conception
  • Recognise the correct placement of intrauterine contraceptive devices
  • Describe the sonographic appearances of common pathologies of the pelvis

PLUS - included in this module is our Getting Started in Ultrasound program

This online module is perfect for getting started. Through a combination of focused video explanations and guided interactive activities you will be able to:

  • Navigate your way around your system and its primary functions
  • Set up for an ultrasound exam
  • Choose the appropriate imaging mode - B-mode, M-mode, colour Doppler, power Doppler, spectral Doppler
  • Optimise your image
  • Make accurate measurements
  • Archive your images

You’ll also learn the fundamental and often neglected building blocks of successful imaging:

  • How you can find the right window to get the best view of the anatomy
  • What actions you can take to purposefully get the best image that you can
  • How to scan safely
  • How to look after your machine
