Sonography as a Cost-Effective and Non-Invasive First-Line Detection Imaging Modality in Diagnosing Endometriosis
1 OB SDMS CME Credit
Content Level: Intermediate

This presentation will discuss the etiology and pathology of endometriosis, appropriate scanning techniques and relevant sonographic findings, and the advantages and limitations of sonography as a first-line detection method. Attendees can expect to gain confidence through enhanced expertise in conducting the sonographic assessment when signs and symptoms of endometriosis are present.

Objectives:

  • Understand the pathophysiology and symptomology of endometriosis
  • Gain current knowledge of scanning techniques and sonographic signs of endometriosis
  • Understand the advantages and limitations of sonography as a first-line detection method for endometriosis in contrast to other imaging modalities

Overcoming Pathology of the Pediatric Female Reproductive Tract
1 OB SDMS CME Credit
Content Level: Intermediate

Many anomalies of the female reproductive tract occur before age 18. Sonography is the primary imaging modality used in the evaluation of these anomalies in the pediatric patient. This lecture will review the anatomy and sonographic appearance of normal pediatric female reproductive organs. In addition, pathology specific to the pediatric female reproductive tract will be discussed with the aid of actual patients’ sonographic images. Ultimately, common pitfalls that are associated with pediatric reproductive tract anomalies will be evaluated. The overall goal of this presentation is to enable sonographers to determine normal versus abnormal structures of the pediatric female reproductive tract and to prepare them for overcoming the common, associated pitfalls. 

Objectives:

  • Review the normal anatomy of the female reproductive tract in the pediatric patient
  • Discuss pathology associated with the female reproductive tract in the pediatric patient
  • Evaluate pitfalls associated with pathology of the female reproductive tract in the pediatric patient

Let’s Talk about the Uterus as the Major Female Reproductive Organ
1 OB SDMS CME Credit
Content Level: Intermediate

Appreciation of the uterus as the major female reproductive organs will be enhanced through an introduction to normal uterine anatomy and malformations that can occur during ductal sex differentiation. These can include the failure of the Mullein duct to fuse completely and the failure of the septum to fully reabsorb, which can lead to anomalies such as uterus didelphysis uterus, septate uterus, or subseptate uterus. Attendees will learn how to (1) identify Mullerian duct anomaly and the different positions of uterus, (2) understand ductal sex differentiation during embryology development, (3) outline endometrial change in the menstrual cycle, and (4) determine key strategies for scanning the pelvis transabdominally.

 Objectives:

  • Define embryology and ductal sex differentiation
  • Describe categories of Mullerian duct anomalies in relationship to ductal differentiation malformation
  • Diagnose uterine position, endometrium thickness at difference phases of the menstrual cycle, adenomyosis, fibroids, and ambiguous genitalia

Not Your Typical Gynecological Ultrasound
1 OB SDMS CME Credit
Content Level: Intermediate

The presentation will review atypical findings for normal, abnormal, and variant ultrasound cases. Each interesting case will be outlined and the topic will be reviewed for application.

Objectives:

  • List and describe the standards for gynecological ultrasound
  • List common variants and the role of sonography
  • Learn techniques to troubleshoot difficulties in achieving optimal imaging
