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.
