A highly succesful international conference on medical ultrasound

Wednesday 24 Jun 15
Artimino  - jointly hosted by Center for Fast Ultrasound and Lund University

More than 120 participants from all around the world met up at the 2015 Artimino Ultrasound Conference. It was the 17th in a series of semi-annual conferences (starting out as the New England Doppler Conferences) on the physics, bioengineering and clinical applications of ultrasound.

The New England Doppler Conference series was founded more than 30 years ago with the intention of giving scientists, engineers and clinicians an opportunity to discuss in depth the technical challenges of diagnosis using ultrasound in a remote, but comfortable setting and with a limited number of people. The format has been one of structured discussions rather than formal proffered papers.

Many major developments in the field, including the duplex scanner, colour Doppler imaging, vector velocity imaging, quantitative methods of haemodynamic assessment, nonlinear imaging as well as numerous technical and clinical innovations have been pioneered by participants of the New England Doppler and Artimino Conferences and discussed at its meetings.

For this 17th conference, the discussion focused on leading edge developments such as microbubble and nanodroplet contrast agents, vector velocity, nonlinear and high frequency imaging as well as new developments in photoacoustics, ultrafast acquisition and synthetic aperture techniques. As a forum for discussion, the conference has traditionally paid special attention to its graduate student participants, a limited number of whom were invited to attend at a subsidised rate.
