The 13th WFUMB congress provides specialists, general practitioners, the users of ultrasound diagnostic equipment - together with researchers and manufacturers from all over the world - with a unique forum for the exchange of experiences, discussions and advanced trainings. Furthermore, the latest developments in ultrasound diagnostics, and forward-looking results from its associated research, will be presented at the WFUMB.

Hitachi Aloka Medical Ltd. is a platinum sponsor for this congress, a commitment, which is supported by their future-orientated cooperation with leading specialists in the area of sonography. At their symposium, Hitachi Aloka Medical Ltd. together with an internationally recognized faculty and chairman of the symposium, Prof. Odd Helge Gilja (from the National Centre for Ultrasound in Gastroenterology at Haukeland University Hospital in Bergen, Norway), will present and discuss new research papers on the subject of high definition imaging technologies and elastography. The latter assists, inter alia, in the detection of malignant tumours using ultrasound technology and can make a decisive improvement to the diagnosis of cancer and the corresponding treatment outcomes. This symposium is only one of the highlights of Hitachi Aloka Medical Ltd.’s attendance, with live presentations from different disciplines also taking place.

On its exhibition booth, Hitachi Aloka Medical will highlight ‘the next generation in high resolution imaging technology’, focusing on the Hitachi HI VISION and Aloka ProSound Ultrasound platforms - introduced and explained by expert employees from Hitachi Aloka Medical Japan, Aloka Europe and Hitachi Medical Systems Europe.

Participants and visitors are invited to experience this at the booth no. 103.
