AIMS Korea
Contrast Enhanced Ultrasound

July 15, 2017; Seoul/Korea
Course informationThe course is aimed at participants from Korea, in particular last year residents, board-certified radiologists and fellows interested in contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) imaging. It is designed to update knowledge on state-of-the-art CEUS imaging, including all aspects of hepatic and non-hepatic CEUS imaging. Particular attention will be paid to the latest developments in renal and other gentio-urinary CEUS imaging in addition to the more traditional hepatic applications. The use of CEUS in emergency imaging will be highlighted. A new and novel use of CEUS will be discussed with applications in many areas in children, reducing unnecessary radiation of CT imaging. Renowned European and Korean experts ensure a high quality teaching programme, combining lectures and interactive case discussions.

Learning objectives
  • to learn and consolidate knowledge in the traditional application in liver disease
  • to assimilate knowledge in the largest growing area for the application of CEUS in the kidney and other genitourinary applications
  • to learn to apply CEUS in the emergency setting as a problem solving tool
  • to advance knowledge in the most potentially useful applications of CEUS in children, potentially reducing radiation
