Message from the ISUOG President

It is both an honor and a pleasure as incoming president to stand on the rapidly growing site of ISUOG’ new headquarters. Notwithstanding the hammer in my hand, together we build a society that is more active, productive and open to the world. Imaging has transcended ultrasound, imposing new challenges and offering interesting perspectives for our appetite to learn and to benefit our patients. Times have become more difficult for many of us and ISUOG has continued to thrive. We are therefore committed not to increase the membership fee while increasing benefits for our members but also the public. More than 6,000 members are now spread over 120 countries and the main purpose of my mandate is therefore to help you get the best online service for learning and networking. This Society is yours, get involved and make your voice heard at least on the website! We hope to see many more still next year in Sydney!

Mongolia Outreach summary

The ISUOG Outreach team spent last week at the National Center for Maternal and Children's Health in Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia, teaching basic ultrasound in obstetrics and gynecology to 18 physicians from the capital and the provinces. The trainees were very active, enthusiastic and welcoming, and the team was sad to leave this weekend but will be eager to return for the second training course. ISUOG wishes the trainees much luck until we see them again! To read about the daily experiences of the team, go to the ISUOG Outreach blog.
