The International Contrast Ultrasound Society (ICUS)

CHICAGO -- Dr. Fabio Piscaglia, of Bologna, Italy, has been elected to the Board of Directors of the International Contrast Ultrasound Society (ICUS), the world’s only medical professional society exclusively focused on the use of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) imaging to improve patient care worldwide. ICUS members include radiologists, gastro-enterologists, cardiologists, and other medical imaging professionals and scientists from 58 countries.


Although many new features in US-guided interventions are being marketed, which are really necessary, which just nice-to-have? It’s a question to be faced by experts during the refresher course ‘Interventional ultrasound’ at WFUMB 2011.

One of the most established ultrasound techniques in minimally invasive procedures is contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) – a tool that is safe, gentle and also cost-effective – as long as the user is qualified for the job, says EFSUMB president Christian P Nolsøe MD PhD, Consultant in the ultrasound section at the surgery division of the gastroenterology department at Herlev Hospital, University of Copenhagen, Denmark. He is also one of this year’s three congress WFSUMB presidents. In our interview, he discussed the advantages of CEUS in US-guided interventions and the importance of radiography meeting particular quality criteria.*
