Dear Colleagues & Friends,
A very warm welcome to you.
On behalf of the Organizing Committee, it gives me great pleasure to invite you to the 21st International Symposium on Endoscopic Ultrasonography – better known as EUS 2018 – which will be held in Bangkok on December 1 & 2, 2018.
Since the 1st EUS symposium was held in 1982 in Stockholm, EUS technology has increasingly become a ‘must have’, both for diagnostic and interventional purposes. Against this backdrop, we have designed an innovative program for EUS 2018 in which all the key topics in EUS will be shared by faculty using platforms & tools that are matched to the desired teaching outcomes. Our intent is to ensure that we achieve the most effective knowledge and skill transfer possible over these very important two days.
To ensure that the symposium is truly learner-centric, EUS 2018 will encourage discussion among participants, actively engaging all attendees with the goal of building a consensus. Highlights include the live demonstrations that will be streamed from King Chulalongkorn Memorial Hospital to showcase the new imaging technologies, EUS-FNA/FNB and EUS interventional treatments. At the end of each demonstration, 2-3 issues will be selected for audience voting and discussion.
Participants will also be given the opportunity to participate in voting and discussion on other challenging cases like the management of pancreatic mass, chronic pancreatitis, cystic lesion, biliary and pseudocyst drainage procedures. We will have a session on evidence-based practice on Day 2, and another on what the experts from the East and West wish to have.
From now until the meeting, we will be working hard to ensure that EUS 2018 meets the current and future needs of EUS practitioners from around the world. We look forward to welcoming your active participation in what we believe will be an exciting symposium here in the fabulous city of Bangkok.
