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.
We are thrilled that the first demonstration of @Samsung‘s e-Cervix happened (smoothly!) today at our event; Expert Pregnancy Imaging. Plenty of positive feedback. If you were there, please let us know your thoughts. @Samsung_HealthC @mishealthcareuk @Samsung_HealthC @SamsungUK pic.twitter.com/2u7mjhqhak

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 for a lower cost.
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.
