Ultrasound Assessment of Pelvic Floor Trauma

Using ultrasound as a tool to assess the pelvic floor is a relatively recent development but is rapidly overtaking other imaging modalities in this field. This course describes the processes leading to damage of the pelvic floor in childbirth and how ultrasound can be used to assess this. Dr Peter Dietz, the convener, is one of the leading authorities in this field and has been responsible for much innovation in this area.

Suitable for:  
Sonographers / Obstetricians  / Radiologists and Gynaecologists that scan in the third trimester of pregnancy or have an interest in gynaecological imaging.
