EUSOBI Diagnostic and Interventional Breast Ultrasound Course

2021

POSTPONED TO: MARCH 1-2, 2021
VIENNA, AUSTRIA

+++ POSTPONEMENT INFORMATION +++

We are all still facing the COVID-19 pandemic impact in various ways and hope that you and your relatives are managing to stay healthy!

Please note that this postponement is a fully equivalent replacement for the planned event originally scheduled for March 9-10, 2020.

As you know, beginning of March EUSOBI decided to postpone the EUSOBI Diagnostic and Interventional Breast Ultrasound Course 2020 until July. Since that time, the outbreak has worsened, with Europe becoming the epicentre of the global pandemic. Public authorities in Austria, as well as much of the rest of the world, have restricted events and enforced travel bans. While for latter there is no official indication as to when the restrictions will be lifted, most events that are planned until end of August 2020 must be cancelled. With this in mind, and the importance of the safety, health and well-being of our course participants, faculty members and industry partners, the EUSOBI Executive Board together with the course directors have decided to not hold the Breast Ultrasound Course this year but postpone to March 2021.

We would herewith like to inform you that course registration fees will remain valid for the new dates. For any questions please contact our office (office@eusobi.org).

We would like to thank you very much in advance for your patience, understanding and valuable support of our society! We are looking forward to a successful EUSOBI Breast Ultrasound Course from March 1-2, 2021, and would be happy to welcome you there.

DEAR COLLEAGUES & FRIENDS,

On behalf of the European Society of Breast Imaging, we are happy to announce the upcoming EUSOBI Diagnostic and Interventional Breast Ultrasound Course which will take place in Vienna, Austria, from March 1-2, 2021 – 2 days before ECR 2021. Don’t miss your chance and join us in Vienna!

Over the course of 2 days, European experts in breast ultrasound will:

  • provide up-to-date reviews on the use of breast ultrasound to detect, differentiate and stage benign and malignant breast lesions;
  • emphasize the basic principles of interpreting and reporting breast ultrasound examinations;
  • deliver interactive case-based US-BI-RADS workshops;
  • provide an extended, in-depth review of best practices in breast imaging with ultrasound;
  • present hot topics and emerging applications;
  • utilise interactive teaching as well as problem-solving case presentation.
  • employ workshops to allow hands-on experience of automated 3D Ultrasound, US-guided biopsy, lesion localization and minimal invasive therapy of breast lesions.

We are expecting a considerable amount of interest in this upcoming course and with attendance limited to 90 participants, we will be operating on a ‘first come, first served basis’.

We hope you will take the valuable opportunity to join us, and look forward to meeting you in March.

Yours sincerely,
Prof.Dr. Michael Fuchsjäger
Dr. Corinne Balleyguier

Due to UEMS regulations, attendees can only claim CME credits for the sessions/workshops that have actually been attended during the event.

As part of this process partcipants’ attendance will be monitored throughout the event.
