Hoping For On-Demand Access?
The Course will be recorded and converted into an on-demand activity later this year. All registrants for the live online course will also have access to the recordings at no additional cost.

Technical Requirements:
This live online course will be delivered using the Zoom Meeting platform which will be accessed through the SPR Online Education Center - XPress. Zoom meeting access, activity evaluation and credit claiming will all be available within the SPR 2023 Fetal Imaging Course product available within XPress one week before the start of the Course.

This live online course will feature two days of didactic and interactive presentations to discuss organization, performance, interpretation, and troubleshooting of fetal imaging for both prenatal diagnostic and interventional purposes, including a review of fetal brain and body anomalies, placental abnormalities, and uterine/implantation concerns. Content will discuss all prenatal imaging modalities, with a particular focus on MR imaging of the fetus.

Target Audience:
The target audience for this program includes pediatric radiologists, as well as adult radiologists, fellows, and residents who interpret prenatal imaging studies.

Learning Objectives:
1.) Understand the fundamental principles of prenatal image acquisition including positioning, optimal modalities,
post-processing techniques, and timing/frequency of exams.
2.) Describe the most common diagnostic concerns involving the fetal body and brain, identify how US and MR
imaging are complementary for diagnosis, and recognize key problem-solving techniques when imaging
difficulties are encountered.
3.) Review the use of US and MR imaging in identifying prenatal candidates for fetal surgery, and the ways in which
imaging can enable prenatal and postnatal surgical interventions.

Accreditation Statement:
This activity has been planned and implemented in accordance with the accreditation requirements and policies of the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education through the joint providership of The American College of Radiology and The Society for Pediatric Radiology. The American College of Radiology is accredited by the ACCME to provide continuing medical education for physicians.
