Ultrasound knowledge expanded in Latvia
Ultrasound tutors active and successful at EUROSON congress
Neuruppin, 19 July 2023
Ultrasound tutors from the Brandenburg Institute of Clinical Ultrasound (BIKUS) at the Brandenburg Medical School Theodor Fontane (MHB) attended this year’s EUROSON23 congress in Riga. They acquainted themselves with latest advances in ultrasound technology and applications. In addition they were actively involved in the 2nd European Students Ultrasound Congress.
Nine ultrasound tutors from the Brandenburg Ultrasound SkillsLab visited the EUROSON23 congress, the most important European event for ultrasound in medicine and biology where leading experts from all over Europe exchange latest advances, innovations and proven procedures in the field. The meeting is a unique opportunity to expand and deepen knowledge and skills. 6-semester medical student Tamy Borbe welcomed the chance to attend high-grade workshops, lectures and debates with renowned physicians from around the globe, and to explore latest ultrasound devices and techniques in practical exercises.
Two awards for MHB students
Prof. Dieter Nürnberg and Prof. Christian Jenssen were co-organizers of the additional Students Ultrasound Congress STUC, where MHB students acted as tutors for local and international students. The English-language sessions covered a wide range of topics such as sonography of the abdomen and of blood vessels, and musculoskeletal imaging. The MHB tutors received two award in this context: one honored the illustration of our teaching concept in ultrasound and the scheduled “sono certificate”; the second went to Isabell Zeiger who presented her Scientific Internship project on “incidental tumors in ultrasound”. Prof. Dieter Nürnberg, MHB inaugural dean and head of the BIKUS, thanked the MHB sponsors’ association for a generous donation which made the successful participation of MHB students at the meeting possible. He said it was a great pleasure to accompany and monitor the MHB students during the event.
Summing up the five days in Latvia, Tamy Borbe spoke of an inspiring experience: “We are looking forward to sharing the acquired information and insights in our activities as ultrasound tutors. We have returned with renewed passion for the subject, with fresh perspectives and ideas how to further our teaching concept and give a maximum support to fellow students at the MHB.”
