Course Description


Roy and Tony Filly

Dr. Roy Filly is professor emeritus of Radiology and Obstetrics/Gynecology at UCSF and co-founder of the fetal treatment program. Dr. Filly founded the ultrasound department at UCSF 40 years ago and ran one of the most sought after fellowships, training many of the foremost thought leaders in the world. Dr. Filly's teaching style stands out, in that, he had to pioneer his own way and learn obstetrical sonography before the field even existed. This unique viewpoint is possessed by very few people still teaching today.Dr. Anthony Filly is fellowship trained in ultrasound, Chief of Radiology in private practice and adjunct faculty in Radiology at Stanford University and won the resident teaching award in 2014 and 2015. Tony's teaching style is based on a sound fund of knowledge in training at Stanford and UCSF, but at the same time having an understanding of the "real world" issues that physicians and sonographers face in private practice.
