Echography: New Recipe, now even better!

Friday, June 24 2016, 10:00 – 18:00

Tuinzaal, Radboudumc

Currently, developments in echography are tremendous. The last decade of the 20th century can be characterized as an era with dramatic improvements in image quality. In the last years, we see predominantly an extension with functionality and real-time 3D imaging. Development in hardware and processing techniques have led to quantification of the velocity and direction of blood flow, quantification of the deformation of organs, and assessment of the elastic modulus of tissues. And not only in 2D but also in 3D to image a full organ almost real-time. To celebrate the inaugural lecture of Prof. Chris L. de Korte, the official acceptance of the chair “Medical Ultrasound Techniques”, a symposium will be organized addressing the latest developments in ultrasound imaging by internationally renowned speakers. These speakers have developed techniques that are commercialized with ultrasound manufacturers and currently demonstrate their clinical benefit all over the world. The ultrasound manufacturers that provide these techniques will also be present.
