    Ultrasound is an essential instrument in the management of urological patients, both in the diagnostic phase and during follow-up after treatment. It is also an evolving technology with increasing performance and is becoming cheaper, more available and user friendly. The knowledge and the use of this method should be part of the standard knowledge and armentarium of each urologist.

    This hands-on-course aims to provide urologists with the necessary baseline training to implement ultrasound as a routine diagnostic tool in daily practice. It will provide basic information by short and concise lectures followed by extensive practical exercise.
