  • Lecture

    • The Pyramid of Fetal Screening and How to Use STIC

    • The Long Term Prognosis of Significant CHD in KCMC

    • Strategy of Neonatal Emergent Therapy from the Fetal Echo Findings

    • Segmental Approach of Complex Congenital Heart Disease

    • The Cathter Invervention of CHD

    • The Fetal Heart Screening and How to Get STIC

    • Management of Critical CHD in Neonates: Focus on PDA Stenting

  • STIC Seminar

    • The Screening from the Position of Organs

    • The Screening from the Heart Size

    • The Screening from the Midline Anomalies

    • The Screening from the Unbalance of 4CV (1) Small Lt & Rt Heart

    • The Screening from the Outflow (1) TOF / TOF Type DORV (2) TGA / TGA Type DORV (3) TAC / VSD PA

    • The Screening from the Arch (1) Vascular Ring / Right Aortic Arch (2) COA / IAA

    • The Screening from the PV

Spacio-temporal Image Correlation (STIC) is the latest in 4D ultrasound technology. The STIC software coupled with a Voluson 730 Expert equipment allows a volumetric acquisition of the fetal heart and its vascular connections. 4D ultrasound provides fast images acquisition and the possibility of a later analysis by fetal echocardiography specialists. With STIC, ultrasound specialists are able to detect congenital heart conditions in the antenatal period with much more accuracy compared to traditional ultrasound methods.

The Workshop will be instructed by Dr. Kawataki, a leading Japanese fetal cardiology doctor from the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Tohoku University Hospital. Participants will be equipped with laptop and STIC software, which will allow to learn the STIC software and apply the techniques directly. To reserve a place or to receive more information, please sign up for our newsletter. You will be sent information about the workshop and details for signing up.

Join the congress that will include leading experts, practical courses and training, and innovative technology in medical and biological ultrasound. Abstracts and case reports can be submitted for oral and poster presentations. Young researchers to clinical experts are all encouraged to submit for presentations. For more details, go to 

Courses and workshops will be offered to provide opportunities for clinicians, ultrasound specialists and sonographers to acquired advanced practical training in innovative techniques from leading experts from around the world.
