Fetoscopic laser will be described, as will other established techniques such as radiofrequency ablation for selective FGR or twins discordant for anomalies. We will also spend a little time on ‘blue sky’ technologies that could enter clinical practice soon, such as non invasive ablation using high intensity focused ultrasound. All the speakers are highly experienced in their fields and have an infectious enthusiasm to teach, debate and discuss.
This webinar will be suitable for fetal medicine experts, radiologists, obstetricians, sonographers, specialist midwives, neonatologists and trainees in these fields.
