This GYN Ultrasound of Nonpregnant Abnormal Uterus - Part I: Advanced Clinical Module overviews the classifications and potential causes behind abnormal uterine bleeding and discusses techniques to evaluate the endometrium. The course thoroughly looks at imaging characteristics, diagnostic criteria, relevant Doppler adjuncts, and widely accepted management guidelines of pertinent endometrial conditions; these conditions include endometrial polyps, submucosal leiomyomas, endometrial adhesions, retained products of conception, arteriovenous malformations, subinvolution of the placental site, endometrial cancer, endometrial hyperplasia, and the effect of tamoxifen on the endometrium. In-module questions and a final mastery test assess didactic knowledge. The patented SonoSimulator helps to develop the requisite hands-on psychomotor skills and cognitive task awareness required to perform both transabdominal and transvaginal ultrasound evaluation of abnormal conditions of the endometrium.
