Questions of Safety and Performance of Ultrasound in Medicine, Bonn, Germany, in April 2000

First Announcement Intern. workshop:
Questions of Safety and Performance of Ultrasound in Medicine, Bonn, Germany, in April 2000

10.April-12.April 2000, Bonn

Educational Seminars following on April 12-14.

Medical ultrasound is an established and expanding sector in public
health. The easy appearance of many medical routine applications may
however frequently hide a difficult background of todays technologies
and its use, giving rise to specific interdisciplinary questions or
problems. This specialised workshop is devoted to the following main
topics: Assessment and quantification of risk (Bioeffect-Potential of
ultrasonic output) versus benefit (performance) of relevant ultrasonic
systems in medicine ; interactions with research in physics and
engineering and new commercial developments ; impact of scientific
results on regulatory activities in health care and achieved quality
levels . The workshop contributes to substantiate existent faults and
future tasks in Medical Ultrasound.

Product Spotlight


Next generation for Phased Array UT is here now with FMC/TFM! Have higher resolution imaging, impr
oved signal to noise ratio, characterize, size and analyze defects better with access to several wave mode views and save raw FMC data for higher quality analysis.  Some of the benefits are:
  • Beautiful Image! Easier to understand what you're looking at
  • Completely focused in entire image or volume
  • Much easier to define setups before inspection
  • Easier to decipher geometry echoes from real defects
  • Oriented defects (e.g. cracks) are imaged better
  • See image from different wave modes from one FMC inspection
  • FMC data can be reprocessed/analyzed without going back to the field

NDT Master Lecturer

In the program both university professors and practitioners will give lectures, which guarantees the
oretical depth and practical inside. Academic Director: Prof. Dr. Christian Boller
The following lecturers are not complete: Prof. Tadeusz Stepinski, Prof. Wieslaw Staszewski, Prof. Frank Walther, Prof. Giovanni Bruno, Prof. Gerd Dobmann, Prof. Philippe Guy


In high volume industries like automotive the requirement for a hundred percent X-ray inspection c
reates a bottleneck in the production. The XRHRobotStar is a fully Automated Defect Recognition (ADR) capable robot-system that allows an ultra-fast in-line inspection.


M2M PANTHER is a phased-array equipment designed for both desktop and industrial applications, offer
ing unparalleled performance in a compact unit. It combines the speed required for industrial integrated Phased-Array Ultrasound (PAUT) solutions, with the most complete set of total focusing method (TFM) imaging techniques, making it the ultimate tool for R&D and procedure qualification.
