Scientific program

SUOG continues its recent tradition by offering two parallel streams of state of the art updates and new research presentations in obstetrics and gynecology. The sessions incorporate the ever popular live scan demonstrations of normal ultrasound findings and overviews by leading world experts. There are plenty of opportunities for small group discussions through our Oral Poster sessions twice daily.   New this year are our afternoon workshops providing didactic updates in key sub-speciality areas and profession specific networking events.

Please visit the Congress website (www.isuog.org) for regular updates on the scientific program, invited faculty and CME accreditation.

Abstract submission - closing date 12 April 2010

Submitted abstracts should include unpublished data. All abstracts will be anonymously peer reviewed, scored and allocated on merit to oral or poster sessions. Scientific program sessions will be formulated around accepted free communication abstracts with overviews and state of the art lectures chosen to complement and support new research data.

Abstracts that have been accepted for presentation will be published in a supplement to ISUOG’s oficial Journal Ultrasound in Obstetrics & Gynecology. 

Please visit our website for detailed submission information.
