Title: Proposing a reliable technique for fetal screening
Speaker: Dr. Ahsan
Time: 3pm-4pm Wednesday November 20, 2009
Place: Brown Theatre, Dept. of EEE (building 193), The University of Melbourne

Our national fetal death rate is 6.7 per 1,000 births. In our indigenous community it surges to 12.3 deaths per 1000 births. Early diagnosis (and management) of abnormal fetuses with cardiac defects will go a long way in reducing these numbers. In this presentation, existing techniques systems for fetal cardiac abnormality screening will be reviewed. A new technique will be discussed based on my recent paper appeared in Khandoker et al, Medical & Biological Engineering & Computing; (2009) 47:1075¿¿¿1082.
