ULTRASOUND COURSEUltrasound scanning is one of the most common and widely used diagnostic tools in the process of treating gynecology, obstetrics or infertility issues.  It helps determine the etiology of an underlying gynec condition that might be the cause for multiple issues or symptoms in women.   What is ultrasound scanning? Ultrasound, also known as ultrasonography or simply sonography, is an imaging technique that is non-invasive and uses sound waves of high frequency to generate real-time images or videos of the internal organs, associated tissues and other structures as warranted by the condition. It is usually prescribed a medical practitioner.   In a gynec setup, there are there are two types of ultrasound scans that are relevant – trans-abdominal scanning (TAS) and trans-vaginal scanning (TVS). In TAS, the probe is moved over the abdomen and in TVS, the probe is inserted into the vaginal cavity. At GGIRHR, we are training doctors on the usage of the TVS for diagnosis and treatment planning for gynec, obstetric and infertility issues. Significance of TVS: It allows the doctor to •         Examine the reproductive organs of the woman in detail •         Detect key pelvic structures, understand their current status and identify any anatomical problems •        Identify the presence / absence of myomas, fibroids, cysts, polyps and other such unwanted structures •        Identify the health of the ovaries, uterus, endometrium, peritoneum, cervix and other pelvic structures •        Identify anomalies such as septate uterus, bicorneate uterus, endometriosis •        Identify cancers of ovaries, uterus and other pelvic organs •        Identify ectopic pregnancies •        Identify abnormal vaginal bleeding, pelvic infections, torsion of the ovaries •         Check the health of the fetus. •        Check the spine, brain, and hips of an unborn baby. •        To look for any congenital disorders of an unborn baby. Being of such extreme significance in the practice of a gynecologist and fertility specialist, deep knowledge and proficiency is required will enhance the effectiveness of the treatment by the clinician. GGIRHR is offering an intense and comprehensive course in ultrasound scanning to help gynecologists get more insight and exposure to performing TVS scans at their place of practice independently and effectively. Most TVS scanning courses are based on patient-based hands-on and this has the limitation that the students only get to learn from what patients are available at the training centre on the day of the training. This severely limits the exposure and hands-on for the student. In addition, in such a typical training centre, students stand around the doctor who is performing the scan and “observe” the scanning process. They do not get to do it on their own. Even if they do it, it is for a limited time where they cannot repeat the scans as it inconveniences the patient a lot. The result of all this is that TVS scan training is always compromised and students tend to make a lot of mistakes in their regular practice before they learn. Many doctors also learn the wrong things and take a long time to unlearn and learn the right way of TVS scanning. To alleviate this issue, GGIRHR has moved a step ahead by introducing the world’s best simulator-based hands-on.  The transvaginal scan simulator with a vast library of gynecological, infertility and obstetric cases provides a student with a wide and deep exposure to almost all possible types of cases that they may encounter in their regular practice. One can gain immense knowledge by practicing transvaginal ultrasound that provides a great experience where the simulator will help the trainees get confident and allows to build required competence. The simulator has been built to make it as close to reality as possible. Most of the students who have used the simulator claim that it is more than 90% close to reality. The simulator is built on one of the world’s best haptics platform and the technology used is so close to scanning on a real patient that many doctors have said that it feels exactly like a real patient, except that it does not complain. Features of the TVS ultrasound training •         An extensive hands-on experience on the simulator that is very similar to that of real patient •        No time limit for the student to practice individual cases •        Simulator provides an anatomical view and the ultrasound view at the same time, to give the students the ability to visualize anatomy by looking at a scan image •        Repeat a challenging case as many times as needed, till the student is really comfortable with the probe manipulation. •        Personalized and one-to-one feedback from the trainer and from the simulator •        Course starts from the basics of ultrasound. Students get to learn from the basic positioning in the various planes, why the various planes needs to be used, how it needs to be used and when it needs to be used. •        Extremly comprehensive library of cases which is taken from real life cases and loaded on the simulator. This allows complete exposure to the students to enhance their knowledge and skill within a short period of time. •        Rigorous review of the hands-on by the trainer through remote access. •        Theoritical sessions that provide evidence-based knowledge and the right algorithm to be used for a proper TVS scan •        Succint gynec and infertility theoretical sessions with ultrasound as the context, to help students get their basics absolutely right. •        Remote access to the various cases for the students to refer to later •        Alumni network that will provide regular refresher classes and various other CMEs Outcomes of training On successful completion of the training, one would be able to: •        Perform a TVS scan efficiently and effectively •        Identify abnormalities of the pelvic organs and correlate findings with the presenting complaints •        Identify and document various adnexal masses, cysts, fibroids, fluid collection etc. •        Perform baseline scans and follicular monitoring scans for managing infertility treatment protocols •        Ensure ability to establish a diagnosis and act accordingly •         Monitor the progress of ovulation induction needed for IVF, IUI, egg pick-up, embryo transfer, and much more. GGIRHR aims to impart the best training in TVS scanning and help clinicians in gaining knowledge and skills – theoretically and practically.   Eligibility – MBBS with a PG in Obstetrics & Gynecology or DNB or a DGO For more details on the TVS ultrasound scanning comprehensive course: Visit: www.ggirhr.com Call: 918971151111 Email: training@ggirhr.com
