Letter From the SRU President and Program Chair

As President and Program Committee Chair of the Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound, we would like to invite you to join us at the 33rd Annual Meeting and Postgraduate Course of the SRU, to be held October 20 – 22, 2023 at the Grand Hyatt Washington, Washington, DC. Our Program Committee has created an outstanding roster of world-renowned speakers with a wide variety of Ultrasound topics ranging from abdominal to neck to vascular to obstetrics to pediatrics to practice management. Listen to the experts teach about technologies that belong in your daily practice including elastography, new US flow applications, and quantitative liver ultrasound. Our two-and-a-half-day program is jam-packed with opportunities for learning, the always entertaining ‘Sonopardy’ where the experts are put to the test, and the opening reception where attendees can form connections and grow friendships. The SRU is once again collaborating with the International Contrast Ultrasound Society for a half-day course on Ultrasound contrast. Don’t miss this unique opportunity to learn how to get your US contrast program started or to expand the use of contrast at your site.

The Grand Hyatt Washington is the perfect location to explore the museums, restaurants, history, and sites of Washington, DC, and the fall is the perfect time to visit.

Please join us!

About This Activity

This activity is structured to address a wide range of topics common to most Ultrasound practices. It focuses on advanced techniques and applications used in general, GU, OB/GYN, Vascular and Interventional procedures. The faculty emphasize updates in image optimization, contrast enhanced applications, head and neck, GU, OB/GYN and interventional procedures while sharing tips on how to acquire the most accurate data. Extensive case review sessions round out the program. 

Target Audience 

This CME activity is designed to educate radiologists, fellows, residents and sonographers. It should also be of benefit to those physicians who order sonographic studies. 

Educational Objectives

Review sonographic findings that can be easily misinterpreted or measured incorrectly and provide strategies for improved patient care.

  • Discuss emergent sonographic findings of ultrasound abnormalities throughout the body.
  • Discuss the most effective uses of contrast enhanced ultrasound in the performance of diagnostic and interventional procedures.
  • Recognize the various uses of ultrasound. No special educational preparation is required for this CME activity.
