The program provides a “one-stopshop” opportunity to update in virtually every area of medical ultrasound at the Darling Harbour Convention Centre on Sydney Harbour.
Over 100 invited speakers from all continents will provide comprehensive coverage of the most topical areas in ultrasound, in both technical and clinical domains, with a strong program for almost every subspecialty physician and sonographer.
