Radiology used to be a unity of different subspecialties. Today, ultrasound is part of general radiology and it is mostly performed by radiologists with some exceptions: neurosonoscopy, cardiovascular examinations — conducted by physicians and radiologists. Professional background Dr. Completed residency in radiology in in Tbilisi, Georgia. Started pediatric ultrasound investigations from following fellowship program at Department of Pediatric radiology of the Cologne University Clinic in Germany.
In the Georgian Association of Ultrasound was founded. The Association has twenty members: ultrasound specialists, radiologists, hepatologists, gastroenterologists, and pediatricians. The Georgian association of radiology was founded in by Professor Pridon Todua.
Nearly radiologists are united in this association. There is also the Association of cardiovascular and interventional radiology founded by Dr. Malkhaz Mizandari in Ultrasound examinations are available throughout country at nearly all medical clinics and diagnostic centres. Access to medical care in Georgia The Georgian Government provides financial coverage through the Ministry of Labour, Health and Social Affairs of Georgia, which includes state and social service agency; however, patients have to share expenses for some services through co-payment.
The State finances healthcare but delivery of medical care is reliant on private medical facilities. The insurance sector is one of the mostly developed sectors of Georgia. A number of private insurance companies offer the population medical insurance schemes. Citizens of Georgia who are insured by private companies are able to access medical care at any private medical institutions; the part of population which does not have private insurance relies on state partial coverage. Radiology and Ultrasound examinations in Georgia Medicine and all its subspecialties in Georgia are rapidly developing, as in all ex-Soviet coun-.
Apart from this, there are certain projects of the Ministry of Health of Georgia under which certain criteria are set for providing total financial cover for medical care. EFSUMB in general has aimed to enrich the ultrasound community with updated material on many aspects of ultrasound. History of ultrasound details may be forgotten soon since so many pioneers have been passing away and with them the detailed know-.
One of the main objectives is to give the EFSUMB member societies a platform to present their impressive achievements. We might finally achieve a book, e-book or at least an app of all this important information. Dietrich CF, Rudd L. Med Ultrason ; — The competition will be conducted in two categories:. The tournament will be conducted in two parts, theoretical and practical.
At first, teams and individual participants will answer a number of questions regarding ultrasound anatomy, ultrasound physics, basic diagnostic challenges and more… This phase will be carried out using the Kahoot! App, therefore it is necessary to have an electronic device with Internet access i.
App has been installed! The theoretical part will also allow us to select two best student teams that will cross transducers in the practical part. In the second part of the Quiz, both teams will have the opportunity to present their skills by performing a number of tasks assigned to them by the Competition Jury. Victory will be determined by precision, knowledge of various examination techniques, ingenuity and time of task completion. Three-person teams of students wishing to take part in the Quiz are invited to send their application to: euroson mtp.
Individual participants will be able to take part in the Competition without prior registration. The competition will be conducted in English. The session was moderated by Prof. Michele Bertolotto Italy The session was very well attended and the room was crowded. The stimulating discussions were animated by several questions.
Sapienza, US and Diagnostic innovations Unit, provided the personal experience and Ultraschall in Med ; — To date, only few papers have been published to compare the accuracy of strain and shear wave elastographic techniques. Both the techniques seem to be useful in the multiparametric ultrasound evaluation increasing the accuracy in this setting. For breast tumour diagnostics, Dr Carlsen stressed that elastography should be used in combination with B-mode examination.
Both strain and shear wave elastography can be used, and it was discussed if strain elastography may be preferable for evaluation of stiff tumours, while shear wave elastography is more reliable in soft tumours.
The ways of combining elastography with the BI-RADS classification has been the topic of many articles, and for comparative. Dr Carlsen concluded that both strain and shear wave elastography should mainly be used as an adjunct for assessing probably benign BIRADS 3 and low-suspicion tumours BIRADS 4a , where elastography can be used to either upgrade or downgrade tumours. Despite the increasing number articles in the last years in musculoskeletal diseases, only a limited increase in evidence level is observed.
For Achilles tendinopathy, ultrasound elastography increased in evidence level from D to B with an expert indication grade of 3. In addition, the use of ultrasound elastography was scored with evidence level B of and an indication grade of 1 for soft-tissue tumour examination.
This is understandable as ultrasound elastography is designed to distinguish tissues with different stiffness and believed that ultrasound elastography for soft-tissue masses and nerve entrapment is a promising technique. We have to acknowledge that most published studies related to ultrasound elastography are pre-clinical or feasibility. However, the progressive implementation of musculoskeletal ultrasound with ultrasound elastography should produce studies with the potential to impact clinical practice.
Klauser Medical University Innsbruck concluded, that at the moment elastography impacts on tendon disease with Level 1b, recommendation 1, whereas nerves show a lower level of 2b. Further longitudinal studies in order to verify impact of elastography in musculoskeletal disorders in clinical routine examination is still demanded. Finally, Prof.

History of ultrasound details may be forgotten soon since so many pioneers have been passing away and with them the detailed know- ledge of the first scanners, congresses and meetings by competition and friendship. The competition will be conducted in two categories: a team of 3-person groups of students from all over Europe, and an individual one in which every participant of the EUROSON Congress can take part.
The stimulating discussions were animated by several questions on the widespread use of elastography of superficial structures, to understand the strengths and weaknesses of current applications, to be able to appreciate the potential in many fields and to be able to incorporate elastography into clinical practice.
We have to acknowledge that most published studies related to ultrasound elastography are pre-clinical or feasibility studies, currently insufficient to increase the evidence level. Published on Apr 6, Go explore.

Diagnostic Medical Sonography is one of the safest medical imaging specialties available today. Sonography, or ultrasound, is a non-invasive diagnostic medical imaging procedure used to visualize organs or systems in the body. The sound waves bounce off the surfaces of the structures they hit, creating an image on a monitor. You will use these images to assist qualified physicians to make a medical diagnosis. The Georgetown campus offers the general learning concentration in diagnostic medical sonography.
