The first part deals with ultrasound of the abdominal aorta for exclusion of an aneurysma of the abdominal aorta (AAA).
In the second part, we will show and discuss gynaecological and obstetric emergencies in which ultrasound can be a useful diagnostic tool (e.g. torsion ovary, haemorrhagic corpus luteum, (threatened) miscarriage, extra-uterine gravidity,…)

With this module, you will be able to recognize a normal aorta and exclude a AAA if good visualisation is possible.
You will be able to recognise an intra-uterine pregnancy and free intra-abdominal fluid, suggestive for an extra-uterine pregnancy. You will know which pathologies can be seen on ultrasound by the gynaecologist, and get a short introduction to these views.
