Leading the Way in Obstetrics

Expert Pregnancy Imaging 2019 featured a fair few “firsts” as part of presenting leading-edge thinking and research, chaired by highly-experienced and -esteemed clinicians in the field; Professors Christoph Lees, Phillip Bennett, and Tom Bourne.

The wealth of content at the conference – formerly known as Expert Fetal Medicine – means it has expanded from two to four days.

World premiere in imaging

Lead sponsor, Samsung, presented the world’s first demonstration of their latest gynaecological imaging machine. Midwife, Rachel Quinland, kindly volunteered to give delegates a live demonstration of the E-Cervix. The technology offers unprecedented clear assessment of cervical health.

GE Healthcare, Hitachi and Roche also showcased their latest technology in the lunch / refreshments area.

In addition to exhibitors, ISUOG once again supported our event, cementing its place as a world-class O&G conference.1

Another first was our trial of live streaming the lectures. This offers leading-edge research findings to practitioners around the globe. In addition to these virtual delegates attending for a special low cost, all delegates can refer to the video recordings via our website, and Online Access remains available to purchase.

Presenting leading-edge of research often highlights the limits of scientific knowledge and where research is needed next. This serves as a reminder of why we must continue to fund research. Proceeds from all our symposia directly do so, via our charity.
