Abstracts are now being accepted for the 16th annual meeting of the International Society of Therapeutic Ultrasound (ISTU), to be held March 14-16, 2016 in Tel Aviv, Israel.
The conference will include talks on advances in focused ultrasound technology and clinical practice. In addition, for the first time, a brain treatment taking place at Rambam Hospital will be broadcast live during the second day of the conference. Abstract submission is now open, and papers are encouraged on modelling, physics, and technology in the field of therapeutic ultrasound, as well as its pre-clinical and clinical applications.
Israel has become known as the “Start-Up” nation because of the many exciting innovations that have been integrated into products and companies, among them our own field of focused ultrasound. This year there will be a special focus on the challenges and successes of innovation. We have added an optional Innovation Day on Thursday, March 17, 2016 which will take place in Jerusalem, combining visits to the antiquities and to organizations working hand in hand with startups to accelerate success.
In addition multiple tours of historical, religious, and natural wonders are being arranged for before, during, and after the conference. To encourage student exposure to this exciting technology, the Focused Ultrasound Foundation is providing funding for the student travel program.
