27th World Congress on Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology 

ISUOG World Congress 2017 – Vienna

Vienna’s artistic and intellectual legacy was shaped by residents including Mozart, Beethoven and Sigmund Freud. The city is also known for its Imperial palaces, including Schönbrunn, the Habsburgs’ summer residence. In the Museums Quartier district, historic and contemporary buildings display works by Egon Schiele, Gustav Klimt and other artists.

The ISUOG Congress offers an extraordinary opportunity to participate in our state-of-the-art scientific program. Submit your research and present it to one of the largest audiences in the field, listen to cutting-edge research with expert overviews and other high–level didactic activities.

Scientific program

ISUOG’s Congress program is presented through a variety of sessions including plenary lectures, didactic workshops and Masterclass sessions where international experts are invited to deliver lively discussions on sub–specialty topics. Cutting-edge research updates comprise more than 50% of the program and are delivered through the oral communication, short oral and electronic poster sessions.

Live scan demonstrations are also an important feature of the main program, complimented by clinical guidance around new and developing technologies. This year we welcome again industry partners to the meeting and offer delegates the opportunity to attend sponsored satellite symposia over the course of the Congress.

In addition to the main congress program, pre–Congress courses are also available and will be delivered on Friday 15 September. Delegates can book onto the pre–congress courses for an additional fee.
