Before discussing Basic & Advanced Course in Obstetric Ultrasound, You need to know a few terms that create misunderstanding within medical students about what they should go for. So through this blog, you are going to understand Fetal Medicine & Obstetric Ultrasound and how it is different from Normal Ob/Gynae. Also we’ll be looking at some leading ultrasound courses that you consider for skilling up yourself in these fields.
Perinatology (Fetal Medicine) is a specialized branch of medicine that deals with the management of mother & fetus health before, during and after pregnancy. The fetal medicine ultrasound is used to look inside the mother’s womb and using 3D & 4D ultrasound mechanism, evaluate the development of the fetus over the time. Sometimes it's known as Maternal Fetal Medicine Ultrasound.
In short, fetal medicine ultrasound is an imaging system which is used to create a picture of the fetus to track its development inside the uterus through sonography.
Prenatal/Pregnancy Ultrasound is used to create images of the growing fetus or embryo inside the mother's womb. These images also used to take a track record of the health of the uterus, ovaries, and the blood flow of the mother. The primary utilization of the Obstetric Ultrasound is to insure the presence of embryo, fertilization, single or multiple pregnancy, and location of the fetus and placenta etc.
In short, Fetal Medicine & Obstetric Ultrasound both are almost same, just their uses and working models are different. That's why you'll see both the terms together almost everywhere.
Maternal Fetal Medicine (MFM) is specialized in high risk pregnancy management whereas Obstetric Ultrasound is used to manage all the complications related to pregnancy and newborn baby.
