October 1 – 4 2023

October 01 – 04, 2023
Budapest, Hungary, Budapest Hotel Marriott, Apaczai Csere Janos u. 4. Budapest, Hungary 1052

“The diagnosis by aspiration is as reliable as the combined intelligence of the
clinician and pathologist makes it.” (Stewart 1933). The use of the combined
intelligence would lead us to the melting point where different “Ideas” dissolve
in an equilibrium. The main purpose of the congress is to find the equilibrium.
We also plan a rich set of social activities.
Registration is open.

Interventional Ultrasound for Pathologist

Course: Interventional Ultrasound for Pathologists

November 23 – 24 2023


Limited Registration places
Objectives of the course
Fine needle aspiration is a minimally invasive test that allows sampling of palpable or not palpable superficial lesions and provides a large amount of diagnostic information.
The profitability of this process is maximized when the pathologist is directly involved in the process of taking the sample, triage method and its interpretation.

Interventional ultrasound has become a common practice in many medical specialties and given the significant increase in patient safety in procedures, its use will continue to expand to a greater number of procedures.
