Film Submission Process

Once the free online Fetal Medicine Foundation theory course has been completed, the next step toward earning a Fetal Medicine Foundation NT credential is submission of images to demonstrate competency. Once you have completed the new online course, you may upload your images directly to your own page on the FMF website. If you are unable to upload your own images you may mail them to Naomi Greene, 12207 Hillslope St., Studio City, CA 91604 - she will upload them for you and review them. Step-by-step instructions for uploading NTimages can be obtained by clicking on the following link: Instructions for uploading NT images. Images are usually reviewed within 10-14 days of uploading.

To upload other types of images (i.e. nasal bone, tricuspid flow, ductus venosus flow, uterine artery Doppler) follow the instructions as for NT but select the appropriate image type from the droplist of Audit Types. If uploading for nasal bone, tricuspid or ductus venosus flow, once you select the image type you will be taken to the image review and scoring quiz for the marker. If you pass the quiz you are directed to upload your images. If you fail the quiz, you need to wait 24 hours to attempt it again. Images are generally reviewed within 10-14 days of uploading.

Images for NT credentialling and all other markers should be submitted in sets of 3 and the following instructions apply to images submitted for any of the markers:

  • The images may be taken on the same fetus but the time must be different on each image.
  • The date and time of scan MUST be left showing on all images submitted for any reason and patient identifiers should be blocked or deleted.
  • For initial accreditation, the first submitted images should be examples of recent work (from the prior two months). If asked to submit subsequent images, the newly submitted images must be newly acquired - they should be dated AFTER applying the suggested changes made in the detailed report written on every set of images and should be submitted in a timely fashion so that they are not ever more than two months old when they are submitted.
  • If you are scanning after someone whose name/initials are in the sonographer slot in the machine header, you MUST NOT block out that information and you MUST type your own name or initials on the screen before beginning to scan.

There is a one-time $100 per person administrative fee due at the beginning of the film submission process. You may pay this one-time fee by credit card or by mailing a check or money order for $100, made out to FMF USA to:

Naomi Greene PhD
12207 Hillslope St., Studio City, CA 91604.

Please include a note with your check stating your name and FMF ID number.
