Discovering, in detail, anatomy in motion of the pelvic floor and pelvic organs during live scan sessions

Prof. HP Dietz gives an overview of different techniques of imaging in urogynecology, followed by a detailed teaching about the possibilities of pelvic floor ultrasound to assess anatomy and function of the anterior compartment (urethra and bladder), the central  compartment (the vagina, vault and uterus) and the posterior compartment (rectal ampulla, anal canal, anal sphincter).

The imaging of the pelvic floor muscles and its integrity (levator ani avulsions, hiatal ballooning) and the visualization of slings and meshes (pre-op versus postop assessment) will be discussed extensively.
