ISURA began in 2001 with its first worldwide courses on Ultrasound and Regional Anaesthesia. In 2004, the same group hosted the first International Symposium on Ultrasound and Regional Anaesthesia, and since 2006, the conference has been held in alternate years in Toronto, Canada, and Schwetzingen, Germany. As you can see in our programme and in our faculty list, the conference has continued to grow, which enables us to invite the top international researchers, developers and teachers in this field..Ultrasound-guided procedures for regional anaesthesia blocks are becoming the most likely standard, and research in the field has focused on the imaging technology in a much broader range. Clinical education, meanwhile, has been overrun by interventional procedures.
12th International Symposium of Ultrasound for Regional Anesthesia and Pain Medicine (ISURA)
On behalf of ISURA Scientific Committee (GJ van Geffan, Barry Nicholls, Thomas Grau, Vincent Chan), we are delighted to invite you to participate in the 12th ISURA to be held in Rotterdam, Netherlands on September 30-Oct 3, 2015
ISURA is the largest meeting completely dedicated to the application of ultrasound for regional anesthesia and pain medicine. Previous events have been hugely successful. This year, we assemble a very exciting program to cover various facets of the use of ultrasound, including the use in gastric scanning, airway management, transthoracic echocardiography, guidance for regional anesthesia, and the application in the chronic pain management. Details of the program is posted on the symposium website. It is my honor and great pleasure to invite you to Rotterdamto meet us in this conference
I look forward to hearing from you.
