Prof Paul Sidhu

This year the London Paediatric CEUS course enters the 5th occasion that it is being organised, with the continuing success of the education on aspects of using contrast ultrasound in children. Yet again we have assembled an exceptional international faculty of experts, all pioneers in the use of CEUS in children, all together in one meeting place – an opportunity not to be missed. 

The course will take place on the 24 and 25 of June 2019 at the Fetal Institute at King’s College Hospital, London, a truly magnificent venue that we have again managed to secure for the course. This is within easy reach of the centre of London, just 9 minutes away on the train. There has been a special reduction in the registration fee to allow as many people with an interest in helping with the imaging of children, due to the generosity of the support from industry –you can register for as little as £200 if you meet certain criteria.

This year there will be a special tribute, with the David Cosgrove Lecture being given by Prof Kassa Darge, from CHOP in Philadelphia, a not to be missed opportunity to hear a true pioneer of paediatric CEUS. Other topics include, liver, renal, tumours, testis, trauma and many novel and exciting new applications of CEUS in the child, preceded by a clear and concise description of the technical aspects of using CEUS.

If you are a paediatric imager, doctor or sonographer, this course is a must, with a glimpse into the future of ultrasound imaging. If you are interested in CEUS this course will offer the foundations for your practice.

Please register at the following link to secure one of the limited places available.
