Javier is among our top winners again!Here your words...√ā¬®This year we have covered 500 Cases of the week on I would like to reflect on how we have changed in these 20 years. The first case of, a triploidy, might seem like a simple case today. Only two people got the correct answer. The number of participants who got the correct answer in case 500 was 131. The great change that has come concerning our diagnostic capacity, a true revolution in the assistance we provide to pregnant women, is mainly due to the improvement of ultrasonic equipment. However, the beautiful images that we achieve today would be useless if there were no experts able to obtain and interpret them That is why Philippe, Federico, Franti and are so important, as they help us with their clairvoyant vision of ultrasound teaching.√ā¬®Congratulations!!!Nickolay Petrovich Veropotvelyan22 solved cases, Ukraine
