Ultrasound Symposium NVMU @ UTwente

On the 1st of November the University of Twente (UT) will host the Fall Meeting of the Dutch Society for Medical Ultrasound (NVMU). The NVMU organizes biannual meetings on technical and clinical developments of medical ultrasound.


The program of the upcoming meeting will focus on three themes:

1.     Ultrasound Velocity Imaging and Diagnostics 
2.     Ultrasound Contrast Imaging and Therapy
3.     Ultrasound Breast Imaging and Robotics

 In addition to the keynotes an attractive collection of invited speakers have been recruited to present the latest innovations of medical ultrasound, ranging from basic and translational research in academia to clinical applications in the medical research centers. The meeting will be concluded with the grand opening of the Medical Ultrasound Twente Advanced Imaging lab, with all research infrastructure and facilities on display and to be explored.

The Medical Ultrasound Twente Advanced Imaging lab will be an integral part of the new Health infrastructure that is currently being developed on campus, that includes medical imaging and therapy, lab-on-a-chip nanotechnology and medical robotics. Furthermore it will be a central key entry point to answer clinical research questions related to medical ultrasound innovation and its translation into the clinic.

All researchers, clinicians, and industrial partners with an interest in the latest breakthroughs in medical ultrasound technology are most welcome!
