ULTRASOUND IN THE NEW MILLENNIUM

A Scientific Conference and Practicum on Oncologic Sonography

The focus of this course is to provide instruction in the routine and unique applications of ultrasound in the cancer patient. Presentations, both didactic and practical workshops, will cover a range of organ systems involving a variety of cancers with their respective diagnoses, management, complications and outcomes. Physicians and sonographers will also have an opportunity to participate in hands-on demonstrations or state-of-the-art ultrasound equipment, as well as to interact directly with the faculty.

This course should be of interest to physicians (radiologists, oncologists, and surgeons), radiology residents, fellows, and medical sonographers.
