Euroson POCUS Invitation A
Euroson POCUS Invitation B

Dear colleague,

We have the great pleasure of announcing the forthcoming Euroson PoC-US SCHOOL Vienna 2024, Hybrid Conference, 5th Edition, held at Vienna University of Medicine, Austria, on 06-07 September 2024, chaired by Dr. Mihai Iacob, EUVEKUS President.  

Our confirmed Keynote Speakers are Prof Caroline Ewertsen - EFSUMB President, Prof Shlomo Vinker - WONCA President, and Dr. Camilla Andersen member of the Executive Bureau, European Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (EFSUMB), together with other ten experts in the field of ultrasonography. 


If you are available, we hope you would be interested and able to take part in this prestigious Conference, and your presence honors us. 

The theme of the Euroson POCUS SCHOOL Vienna 2024, 5th Edition is

The POCUS Curriculum and Guidelines in Frontline Physicians as a Daily Practice. 
About the Conference: 

The Hybrid Conference is organized by EUVEKUS /EADUS – The European Ultrasound Working Group in Frontline Physicians, EFSUMB endorsed, supported by WONCA Europe and EACCME (UEMS) credited. 

As a novelty in the way of organization, we will realize this Euroson School on two levels: beginners and advanced. 

There will be a common theoretical part, accessible to all participants, and a special theoretical part based on competence levels, after which, depending on their requests, we will have a separate practical part for beginners and advanced.

The Euroson POCUS School Conference will reflect the collaboration to advance common approaches and POCUS skills in frontline physicians, aimed at improving early diagnosis through ultrasonography techniques.

EUROSON PoC-US SCHOOL 2024 will host over 100 delegates and approximately 14 world-renowned faculty from Europe. 

The meeting will provide participants with a unique opportunity for sharing knowledge, and practical US skills through workshops.

Through the existence of continuity services in primary and ambulatory care and the use of cutting-edge technologies such as point-of-care testing, point-care ultrasound, and telemedicine, and an appropriate educational system, they can very successfully serve the population's access, especially in rural areas, ultimately resulting in the decongestion of emergency systems in hospitals. 

POCUS deals with narrowly defined clinical questions within a body region or an individual organ without claiming to comprehensively assess a region or an organ from the human body.

The central question is what should and must a frontline physician be able to do to carry out basic medicine with ultrasound?

Essentially, it is about being able to decide with greater accuracy in acute situations with the support of emergency sonography in particular (“triage tool” emergency sonography) whether a patient can continue to be treated at home or whether further acute diagnostics and treatment within the hospital are necessary. In addition, the use of emergency sonography can improve and accelerate the correct diagnosis of very central symptoms. This saves other diagnostic examinations and leads to an earlier start of adequate therapy.

When we have advanced and relatively cheap ultrasound devices, and high-performance technology with artificial intelligence or some smart software using updated diagnostic algorithms, it's time to complete the classic clinical examination (by history, inspection, palpation, percussion, and auscultation) with the new clinical-ultrasound examination that currently allows us to visualize through ultrasound most organs and tissues of the human body(US-inspection), along with electronic ultrasound palpation through ultrasonographic elastography method(US-palpation), but also with the electronic auscultation through the Doppler Triplex technique(US-auscultation) to increase the diagnostic accuracy in primary and outpatient healthcare.

The Conference Venue will be the University of Medicine in Vienna, where we have previously organized a successful Euroson POCUS School under the auspices of EFSUMB. (Universitätszahnklinik Wien, Sensengasse 2A, 1090 Vienna, Austria). 

REGISTRATION: Registration and participation fees for participants/delegates can be paid directly online on the Conference website:  http://eurosonpocus.com/pricing/

Recruitment for the Delphi Panel Invitation

Recruitment for the Delphi Panel


We invite medical doctors, who have experience with performing ultrasound examinations in the primary care setting, to participate in a research project including a Delphi process. Our aim is to establish an EFSUMB ultrasound core curriculum for frontline physicians working in primary care.

If you are an experienced ultrasound user and teacher, you will have accumulated valuable experience as to which ultrasound scanning examinations are easy to learn and master, and which ultrasound scans require more training and experience. Such experience is important to the ultrasound community, and we therefore hope you will wish to share your knowledge with us.

For this research project, we will assemble a Delphi panel of ultrasound-experienced primary care doctors from 40 European countries. If you wish to be considered for the Delphi panel, you will need to answer a short questionnaire (please see QR Code or link below) so that we may determine if you meet our eligibility criteria. Many thanks for your time.

Kind Regards,

The EFSUMB task force group
