Bubble Conference 2018

Category: Conferences


September 6th & 7th, 2018
The Blackstone, 636 South Michigan Avenue, Chicago, Illinois 60605

Please join the conversation as the global collaborators and experts in the field of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) meet in Chicago again this year. This is a unique forum for the CEUS community to network, collaborate and discover solutions to common challenges in the specialties.

The annual Bubble Conference is the single-most important global forum for cross-specialty CEUS research and practice.  Bubble Conference faculty members include the world's foremost clinicians, physiologists, engineers, and other scientists working in the fields of cardiology, radiology, vascular medicine, gynecology, gastroenterology, and other body imaging sub-specialties. Participants include physicians, scientists, nurses, sonographers, technicians and related paramedical professionals from North and South America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East

Since the very first Bubble Conference sessions were held in a small conference room in 1985, this extraordinary international meeting has consistently featured the most compelling scientific and clinical work in the CEUS field, along with opportunities to test new ideas, forge new scientific relationships and drive the field forward.  Whether you are a clinical practitioner, a research professional or a member of industry, you will not want to miss this year's 33rd Annual Bubble Conference.

The meetings  take on added significance with unprecedented interest in avoiding unnecessary exposure to radiation-based medical imaging, reducing overall healthcare costs and improving healthcare quality for patients.The Bubble Conference features timely updates on safe non-invasive, cost-effective, radiation-free CEUS imaging of organ systems and tumors throughout the body. Additional sessions will offer regulatory and accreditation updates along with breaking scientific developments in the use of contrast agents to enhance targeted delivery of genes and drug therapies.

Presenters address clinical safety and expanding applications of diagnostic CEUS, along with promising investigation and clinical applications of therapeutic CEUS for targeted delivery of genes and drugs to organ systems and tumors.  All sessions are highly interactive, promoting lively discussions in an open, challenging, collegiate atmosphere. As a result, Bubble Conference consistently spark new innovations that help energize the CEUS fields, with the ultimate goal of improving patient care and saving lives.
