The 17th World Federation for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology Congress hosted by
Dear Colleagues and Friends,
The European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (EFSUMB) and the Federación Española de Sociedades de Ultrasonidos en Medicina y Biología (FESUMB) are pleased to invite you to Granada in the south of Spain for the 31st European Congress of Ultrasound (EUROSON). The EUROSON 2019 Congress will be held from Wednesday, 29 May, to Saturday, 1 June 2019 at Granada Conference Centre, which is very conveniently located within walking distance from the city centre.
We have a programme, which has been built on the experience of the last years’ FESUMB and its member societies with a combination of invited lectures, scientific communications and workshops, including many opportunities for attendants to get hands-on experience.

Presentations from the WFUMB Webinar: IMpocus: The Current State & Exciting Future of Ultrasound Use in Internal Medicine – 08-01-2019
A successful WFUMB Webinar event took place on 8th January 2019, 7 PM CET titled – IMpocus: The Current State & Exciting Future of Ultrasound Use in Internal Medicine on 8th January 2019, 7 PM CET. Expert speakers from the event were:
• What folks are doing internationally
• How IM POCUS compares with EM or ICU POCUS – what makes us different?
• What challenges we face as a community going forward and how we can address these (as a village)
Presentations from the webinar are below …
Newborn with arterial hypertension and focal renal or adrenal lesion (B-mode ultrasound, 40 mm). Contrast enhanced ultrasound allowed to solve the differential diagnosis. The complete lesion was non-enhancing (contrast injection of Sonovue™, see video). Adrenal hemorrhage is non-enhancing in contrast to adrenal neoplasia.
[Dietrich CF, Buchhorn R]
Take home messages
Contrast enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) allows diagnosis of adrenal hemorrhage and to exclude neoplasia.
CEUS is safe in newborn, children and adults [(1)].
