New Fetal Cardiology Online Series

Congenital heart disease (CHD) is the leading cause of infant morbidity and mortality from birth defects. In Virginia alone, there are 100,000 births per year resulting in 800 cases of congenital heart disease with almost 400 babies having severe disease that requires intervention during infancy. Sonographers and obstetricians are on the front line for detecting CHD prenatally. These modules focus on improving CHD detection rates in maternal fetal medicine offices through fetal cardiac screening processes. Topics include the physiology of the fetal cardiovascular system, CHD of the left heart, and CHD of the right heart.
