It is a tradition at the Society of Fetal Medicine to encourage young talent & “younger
presenters” and Fetal Neurosonography Update will be no exception.
You can be a presenter in two ways:
- A traditional research paper.
- Electronic Poster.
- A Just Images Case/ Small Series on a specific fetal CNS condition/ investigation.
Please read ALL instructions carefully.
All abstracts will be anonymised and judged by an independent group of judges. Abstracts
selected will be included in the main Congress program.

Poster authors will be sent detailed guidance on how to do this, once their abstract
