This module will equip you with skills and knowledge you need for a successful career in gynaecological ultrasound. Tuition is given by leading experts in the field. For those already in possession of a CASE accredited ultrasound qualification (PGCert or above) who wish to expand their scope of practice this module can be taken as a single module for continuing professional development.

This module covers the following:

  • Regional normal cross-sectional anatomy of the non-pregnant female pelvis including anatomical variants.
  • Physiology of the menstrual cycle including hormonal influences.
  • Ultrasound appearances and assessment in normal and pathological conditions related to: Non-pregnant female reproductive system and associated structures.
  • Introduction to early pregnancy appearances including pregnancy failure and ectopic pregnancy.
  • Examination techniques using trans abdominal (TA) and trans vaginal (TV) approaches.
  • Adaptation to examination techniques in oncological diagnosis - mass differentiation.
  • Interventional procedures including oocyte retrieval and HyCoSy.
  • Infertility investigations and treatment.
  • Doppler ultrasound investigations of the pelvic vasculature.
  • Evaluation of alternative imaging techniques and tests.

The module is part of the MSc Medical Imaging (Ultrasound) programme, which is accredited by CASE (Consortium for the Accreditation of Sonographic Education), allowing you to practice ultrasound in the UK and some overseas countries, on successful completion of the programme. The module itself is not CASE accredited as a stand-alone module.

Graduate destinations

On successful completion of the course, you will be able to provide evidence of preparation for practice to the standards required for a first post-qualification sonographer role. We have consulted with local ultrasound service partners who have confirmed that this would allow employment of graduates in most regional NHS contexts. However, applicants from a non-health care background should note that, at present, employment in some NHS Trusts would not be possible due to the requirement for professional registration. These potential restrictions on employment will be discussed with you during the application process and you will be asked to sign a memorandum of agreement confirming your understanding and acceptance.
