We were very excited to officially launch our website last week with a special offer:
Get our 10 hour CME course FREE with a 1 year membership
Less than $5/credit!
We didn't expect to fill them up in 72 hours though!
We were truly humbled by the response!
Due to the popularity, we extended the offer through Sunday March 27

Our latest lecture release on Ovarian Lesions is
free til the end of the week too!

If you do obstetrical ultrasound, you will be assessing amniotic fluid every day.
Do you have some rules you live by?
Do you use visual queues? If so, what are they?... Is just that it "looks normal" or do you know why it looks normal?
How about fluid measurements? Are you doing them right? Do you know where those numbers come from?
I've posed a lot of questions here.....
Check out this video excerpt from Roy Filly's lecture: "Amniotic Fluid - How to get it right" and get some answers...
This is part of our new premium video course and our 10 hour CME course. You can find that course and our basic "e-course" called Demystifying the Second Trimester Scan which will give you a no nonsense overview of "what you really need to know" to perform/interpret OB scans at a high level by clicking here!

If you perform OB ultrasound, the biometric evaluation of the fetus is something you do every day. It's not the most complicated thing in the world, but there are definitely some nuances.
If you are learning or new at OB ultrasound, becoming excellent at biometric measurements and learning how to do it the right way now is critical!
At the same time, I see many experienced sonographers make subtle errors on occasion.
Here is another video excerpt from our new 10 hour CME course.

We all know that the lateral ventricular measurement is a hallmark of the obstetrical sonogram
What makes this measurement so unique and special?
What is the appropriate way to measure it?
What is normal? Is it a spectrum or is there a hard cut off?

At the beginning of this series, we suggested that watching 5 short videos would allow you to be able to assess the fetal heart for a significant abnormality in under 10 seconds.
Now it's time to put you and us to the test! Watch this short video and see how you do?
As always, Thanks for watching
We've reached the last of our 5 Steps! In this step, we will discuss a single finding that if present, has a 90% chance of an associated cardiac anomaly, whether you see it or not!
In Step 1, we described a system to identify the chambers that works in all planes and orientations
In Step 2, we found how to compare chamber sizes and use these to our advantage
In Step 3, we used heart position to help us predominantly identify extracardiac abnormalites
In Step 4, we used discussed using the cardiac axis to alert us to subtle extra and intracardiac anomalies
As always, Thanks for watching
We're finally over the hump and on the down slope. You're very close to mastering the fetal heart!
In step 3, we departed a bit from looking inside the heart and used our 4-chamber view to help us detect chest masses.
In this short step 4 video, we will learn how to quickly and efficiently assess the cardiac axis. A quick look at the axis can help us increase our sensitivity for detecting even more subtle chest masses as well as subtle cardiac defects.
Thanks for watching,
So far in Step 1, we covered a robust method for identifying chambers that works in all orientations and in Step 2, assessing the size of chambers to avoid missing intrinsic anomalies... particularly, the subtle ones.
