Tuesday workshops will cover all aspects of venous ultrasound. The Program Chair is Prof. Nicos Labropoulos joined by an expert international faculty including Dr Luis Leon (USA) and Dr Tony Gasparis (USA).

Wednesday program starts with a Masterclass on Vascular Access and continues with an exciting program put together by our sister societies, the Australian Society for Ultrasound in Medicine (ASUM) and the Australian Sonographers Association (ASA). This program covers an interesting range of topics such as vascular access, MSK, ‘funky’ soft tissue masses and point of care ultrasound.

Thursday program will start with an accredited course on IVUS and a Masterclass on scanning neck veins. These will be followed by 2 HOTS sessions dedicated to practical applications of duplex ultrasound in phlebology and a special station on air plethysmography (APG). The number of participants is limited to allow direct interaction with the instructors. Given the limited available spots and to ensure we maintain small numbers in each group, HOTS allocations will be made on a first-in first-served basis.
