New sessions added to Clinical Imaging and Saving Babies’ Lives elearning programmes

Health Education England elearning for healthcare (HEE elfh) has worked in partnership with the College of Radiographers and the HEE maternity team to develop 3 new sessions for the Clinical Imaging and Saving Babies’ Lives programmes.

The sessions, aimed at sonographers, introduce and explain the ultrasound components of the Saving Babies’ Lives Care Bundle Version 2.

Each elearning resource takes approximately 30 minutes to complete and comprise the following topics:

  • Introduction – explores fetal growth restriction and associated risks. It provides an overview of how to evaluate fetal biometry and interpret estimated fetal weight charts.
  • Uterine Artery Doppler Assessment – describes the technique for assessing uterine arteries using Doppler. It also demonstrates how to interpret and report resultant waveforms and graphs.
  • Cervical Length Assessment – demonstrates appropriate equipment settings to optimise the image and technique to acquire accurate images and how to measure and report cervical length.

A 4th session, Middle Cerebral Artery Doppler, will be available soon.

The sessions have been written by subject matter experts Trish Chudleigh, Ellen Dyer and Sonia Cumming. Gill Harrison, Professional Office for Ultrasound at the College of Radiographers has edited the sessions.

To access the new resources, please visit the sessions within the Clinical Imaging programme.
