Ultrasound Evaluation of Ovarian Tumors
Ultrasound evaluation of ovarian tumors can be used to determine the likelihood of malignancy by using protocols validated by the International Ovarian Tumor Analysis group (IOTA) including simple rules, easy descriptors, and the ADNEX model.

Pregnancy of Unknown Location
Clinical outcomes of women with pregnancy of unknown location (PUL) can be improved by mastering three concepts; sonographic definition of early pregnancy, natural history of PUL, and management options for PUL.

1st Trimester Screening for Preeclampsia
Preeclampsia is a major cause of maternal, fetal, and neonatal morbidity and mortality. Recent publications have shown that the use of low-dose aspirin can significantly reduce the risk of early and severe preeclampsia but only if started prior to 16 weeks’ gestation. The ​talk will describe components of th​e algorithm for screening for preeclampsia as well as the optimal dose and timing of aspirin administration for preeclampsia prevention.

1st Trimester Ultrasound, Cell-Free DNA, or Both?
Cell-free DNA testing is a great advance in screening for fetal chromosomal defects. However, this technology has a very narrow scope of use. Therefore, it must be a part of an overall screening strategy rather using it in isolation. This ​talk will summarize the benefits and limitations of the cell-free DNA technology and how to optimize its use by combining it with first trimester ultrasound screening.
