The implication for the individual family is often far reaching. These rare outcomes are often difficult to predict, we now can however now screen for and create awareness about it, this lecture series will address this, it is aimed at a general audience to update midwives, registrars, OB/GYNs and Radiologists on current practice. It’s a fast-paced day, sticking to important take home messages.
