Last week, a record number of 444 physicians and sonographers gathered in Orlando, Florida, for the 38th Annual Advanced Ultrasound Seminar: OB/GYN. The program, which was co-directed by Lennard Greenbaum, MD, and Frederick Kremkau, MD, featured an impressive array of speakers, all of whom have been presidents (plus the incoming president-elect) of the AIUM.
Over the course of 3 days, attendees heard from these experts on a wide variety of topics, including ovarian cancer screening, fetal malformations, endometriosis, fetal cardiac imaging, and adnexal masses. You can find the full schedule, plus a list of the faculty here.
By all accounts, this year’s event was a success. Here are just a few comments from attendees:
- “I love this course. This is my 8th year attending and every year I take home a couple of real ‘pearls’ to assist me in improving the studies that I do in our office.”
- “Overall excellent course – well organized, great venue/location, excellent lectures which are clinically relevant.”
- “I have attended this conference several times in the past and always learn either a new technique or something very beneficial I can bring back and share to help improve patient care.”
- “I’m really impressed with how clear and applicable this information was.”
And these comments played out in the survey results, as 64% said that this course was better than others they have attended and 97% said they would recommend this course to their colleagues.
The co-directors and AIUM are already hard at work planning next year’s course, which will be held February 18–20 at Walt Disney World’s Yacht and Beach Club Resorts. Keep an eye on The Scan and the AIUM website for details as they become available. And if you are interested, register as soon as it opens because 91% of this year’s attendees said they were very likely to attend another AIUM post-graduate course.
