Day 2: Trainees enjoy a day of interactive teaching and live scanning

The second day of ISUOG Outreach training combined lectures and case presentations, delivered in the morning, followed by an afternoon of hands on scanning.

Morning lectures covered topics from abdominal renal genital placental and fluid anomalies, amnionicity, chorionicity and associated zygoxity.  New volunteers for this trip, Hyun Sun Ko and Hye Sung Won, both had an opportunity to participate in the program and share their knowledge with the local trainees.

Trainees were also given an opportunity to participate and direct the discussion, as they presented their own cases. These had been prepared in advance of the trip, as the trainees were asked to bring some case examples they had come across in their scanning thus far. The first students presented their cases in the morning with student presentations due to continue throughout the week.

Teacher for a day  - the trainees present their cases!

In the afternoon, the trainees had a chance to put their theoretical knowledge into action, with some hands on scanning on patients at the hospital. Following the pre-training scan tests from day 1, the trainees were split in to four different groups according to their competency, in order to develop their skills in real-life situations. The volunteers each took a group and guided their trainees through the examinations. One of the groups detected quite a few anomalies including aortic stenosis, Dextrocardia, sacrococcygela teratoma and a diaphragmatic hernia!
