This is the 4th biennial Advances in Fetal Echo Conference at Children’s Health. This conference will focus on fetal echocardiography with an emphasis on diagnosis and management of congenital heart disease. The conference will offer PEARLS for physicians and sonographers who perform and interpret fetal cardiac images. We will discuss how to optimize imaging, provide living imaging demonstration and review how to recognize and interpret major forms of congenital heart disease. In addition, this course will highlight fetal MRI assessment of congenital heart disease and focus on the effects of maternal hyperoxygentation.
