The 29th EUROSON, Congress of EFSUMB focused on the new developments in science and education, with renowned European speakers providing state-of-the-art lectures and live demonstrations. This year, the congress was organized by the Turkish Society of Ultrasound (TUD) together with EFSUMB and in accordance with the EFSUMB’s motto “Building a European Ultrasound Community”, the congress focused on creating a vibrant, interdisciplinary meeting place for students, doctors, engineers, professors, sonographers, industry and all stakeholders of ultrasound. Ultrasonography is crucial for correct diagnosis and treatment of many patients, and the doctors base much of their clinical decisions on information provided by scans. Interventions and ultrasound-directed therapies are also increasingly employed to promote personalized therapy. EFSUMB is a major contributor of new clinical guidelines and recommendations, and many of these will be presented at the congress.
