"The small pocket sonography devices almost come – comparable to stethoscopes in the past – standard with doctor's white coats"

Congress Presidents of the Three-Country Meeting Prof. Dr. med. Markus Hahn (Tübingen, Germany) and Dr. Hans-Peter Weskott (Hannover, Germany) in an interview.

The ultrasound method rapidly evolved during the past years. At the Dreiländertreffen of the expert associations DEGUM, ÖGUM and SGUM in Leipzig during the time from October 16th to 19th the newest scientific findings will be presented as well as there will be in-house training opportunities available under the motto "As specialist societies we have the duty to train doctor's of all medical fields and to foster science" so say the Congress Presidents Prof. Dr. med. Markus Hahn and Dr. Hans-Peter Weskott. Sonography is one of the most important and most used imaging techniques in medicine.

43. Dreiländertreffen in Leipzig, Germany

Ulrasound - More than an imaging method for doctors

Interdisciplinary experts meeting of the three German-speaking ultrasound societies in Leipzig

Despite the fire in May the Ultrasound Congress of the German, Austrian and Switzer Societies of Ultrasound (DEGUM, ÖGUM and SGUM) will take place during the time from 16th to 19th of October. The organizers were able to relocate the Three-Country Meeting at short notice to Leipzig. During four days experts discuss the most advanced and future oriented techniques and scientific result: new and established possible uses of contrast-enhanced ultrasound, significance of high-definition ultrasound equipment which enables precise surgery, new technical developments and methods with which tumors can be destroyed pinpointed and a lot more.

Nerve Ultrasonography as an Additive Tool to Clinical Examination and Electrodiagnostics in SporadicMononeuritis – Imaging is the Key

Natalie Winter et al.
An infectious pathogen of neuritis was not found in any patient. All but one patient showed predominant axonal nerve damage in NCS, whereas ultrasonography and MRI revealed fascicular and/or overall cross-sectional area (CSA) enlargement or T2 hyperintensity of the affected nerve segments, suggesting an inflammatory background of the neuropathy. Most patients showed significant clinical amelioration of symptoms under treatment (75.0 %) and consequently a decrease in CSA/fascicle enlargement over time (77.8 %).

Ultrasound Nomograms of the Fetal Optic Nerve Sheath Diameter

Karina Krajden Haratz, Yaakov Melcer et al.

Sonographic age-specific references for the fetal ONSD are presented. This data may assist in the decision-making process in fetuses with a suspected increase in intracranial pressure, or anomalies affecting the development of optic stalks, such as optic hypoplasia and septo-optic dysplasia.


Prospective Evaluation of Semiquantitative Strain Ration and Quantitative 2D Ultrasound Shear Wave Elastography (SWE) in Association with TIRADS Classification for Thyroid Nodule Characterization

Vito Cantisani et al.

To evaluate the diagnostic performance of strain ratio elastography (SRE) and shear wave elastography (SWE) alone and in combination with Thyroid Imaging Reporting and Data System (TIRADS) classification parameters to improve differentiation between benign and malignant thyroid modules.
