On Monday, the Foundation will begin its first-ever virtual Symposium. The 7th International Symposium on Focused Ultrasound will bring together the global community of researchers, clinicians, industry leaders, and other stakeholders.
A few things to know about this year’s meeting:
The Symposium will run on the virtual platform Showcare.
More than 250 presentations will be available via a variety of formats, including live talks, prerecorded “on-demand” videos, and posters. See the Final Program >
New sessions have been designed to facilitate collaboration among virtual attendees, including roundtable discussions and Q&A opportunities.
The program includes an impressive group of keynote speeches and special lectures from inspiring pioneers in research, medtech, and innovation. See the Speakers >
Over five days, we will explore the latest in using focused ultrasound to treat conditions across oncology, neurology, women's health, cardiovascular disease, pediatrics, and more. We will also address technology gaps and commercialization efforts. Learn about new features this year.
Look for Two Emails When you register for the Symposium, expect a confirmation from Cvent and a separate email – from a Showcare address – containing login information. Remember to check your spam folders if you don’t see an email.
Don't Wait to Register There may be a lag time of up to one hour between when you register and when you have access to the meeting.
