We are waiting for you all in Timișoara between 25–28 May 2022 for WFUMB 2022/EUROSON 2022/SRUMB Conference 2022.
The organizers are preparing an exciting scientific program with one day of postgraduate courses with different topics – Abdomen, Breast, Musculoskeletal US, Emergency US, Vascular US, Ultrasound for the GP etc., and two and a half days of scientific sessions where the experts will present the newest information in diagnostic and interventional ultrasonography, covering the usual broad range of topics. Finally, special attention will be paid to the presentation of the results of the original research in poster and oral presentation sessions.

Peiman Nazerian et al.
This is a multicentric observational study involving adult patients suspected of having diverticulitis presenting at 4 EDs. 21 sonographer physicians were asked to diagnose diverticulitis and complicated diverticulitis based on clinical-sonographic assessment. The final diagnosis was established by two reviewers, blinded to POCUS, based on data collected during the one-month follow-up comprehensive CT scan.

The diagnostic performance of the normalized local variance (NLV) values in detecting each grade of fatty liver was determined using receiver operating characteristics analyses, and multivariate linear regression analyses were performed to identify variables significantly associated with the NLV values. The NLV value demonstrated excellent diagnostic performance for detecting varying degrees of fatty liver, and the degree of steatosis on histopathological examinations was the only significant factor affecting the NLV value.

Participants with Alzheimer's disease (AD, n = 30) and age-sex-matched controls (n = 30) underwent transcranial sonography (TCS) and MRI. On TCS, medial temporal lobe (MTL) structures (choroidal fissure (CF) and temporal horn (TH)) were measured and combined to create an medial temporal atrophy MTA score in sonography (MTA-S). Furthermore, both THs and the third ventricle were combined to form the ventricle enlargement score in sonography (VES-S). On MRI, the MTL was evaluated by linear measurements, MTA scale and hippocampal volumetry. Validation was performed by comparing imaging methods and the patient group.
