On behalf of the Lithuanian Ultrasound Association’s organizing committee, it is my pleasure to invite you to the EFSUMB School (European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology) of multiparametric liver ultrasound imaging taking place in Vilnius, Lithuania on 7-8 February 2020.
Ultrasound imaging technique is the first line imaging modality for screening and also evaluating liver changes. The main advantage is that it is broadly available, and also is harmless to the patient. Multiparametric ultrasound imaging includes greyscale, vascular Doppler, contrast enhanced ultrasound, elastography, and other ultrasound techniques. They can be applied in both diagnostic and interveventional fields. The multiparamectric approach in our daily practice will give the opportunity to extend the scope of ultrasound imaging capabilities to evaluate diffuse and focal liver pathologies, liver transplants. For that reason a deep learning framework is important to gain skills and knowledge in this field. Our goal is to give you an opportunity to join the course that would enhance not only your theoretical knowledge about the ultrasound techniques but also would give some practical experience in solving a real live cases, that we are going to perform on site, discussing together the best methodological approach and the main tips and tricks of the techniques.
Even more, as the course will be held in the capital city of Lithuania – Vilnius, you will also get an opportunity to visit the city that is so famous of one of the largest surviving medieval old towns in Northern Europe. It is a place where some of Europe’s greatest architectural styles: gothic, renaissance, baroque and neoclassical stand side by side and complement each other. One of the most elaborate architectural complexes is the Vilnius University Architectural Ensemble, which occupies a large part of the Old Town. After a nice evening walk it is nice to relax and partake some traditional food and beverages while discussing daily impressions.
So I Welcome you to enjoy together a multiparametric liver ultrasound imaging course led by academic excellence and to be a part of growing diagnostic excellence in ultrasound.
I look forward to see you in Vilnius!
