Following on from the success of the 1st Australian Fetal Cardiology Conference in 2017, we are holding the 2nd Australian Fetal Cardiology Conference over 2 1/2 days in March 2019, starting at 2pm with presentations on early trimester followed by our keynote speaker at 4pm. We will then proceed to a local venue for the meet and greet cocktail party planned for the evening.
The next two days will bring together both national and international speakers including fetal cardiologists, ultrasonologists and sonographers, to present on core concepts in Fetal Cardiology as well as new concepts and recent advances.
Presentations will combine a review of key concepts, illustration of pathology via extensive imaging review as well as discussion regarding postnatal treatment options and outcomes.
Professor Julene Carvalho is the Head of Fetal Cardiology at The Brompton Centre for Fetal Cardiology with her unit based at The Royal Brompton NHS Foundation Trust, London (UK). She also works at the Fetal Medicine Unit, St George’s Hospital and is Professor of Fetal Cardiology at St. George’s University of London.
Professor Carvalho is a world leading sub specialist Fetal and Paediatric Cardiologist. She has published extensively in the area of the diagnosis and treatment of fetal cardiac disorders. She has a special interest in the early diagnosis of fetal cardiac anomalies, from as early at 12–13 weeks gestation. Professor Carvalho is involved closely in the education and training of high-risk obstetricians and sonologists, obstetric sonographers and paediatric cardiology trainees with an aim to improve recognition and advancing treatment of fetal cardiac anomalies.
We are excited to have Professor Carvalho join us as keynote speaker in 2019.
