The theoretical, methodological, and clinical specialisations of ultrasonology in the fields of medicine and biology will be examined in the courses of the International School of Ultrasonology. Of particular interest is the type of upgrading and specialisation between the different branches of medicine and biology that use ultrasound as a common energy factor. In every field of the different branches of medicine and biology, there is an obvious need for constant and vital help from technology. The results are certainly more sophisticated and reliable. This need calls for a permanent meeting place between the most qualified international experts and the most fervent supporters of ultrasonology, both technically and clinically. A constant exchange of information and data can take place between experts and, subsequently, between experts and students. This interaction between the various specialist fields must be seen as a means of advancing the use of ultrasound equipment in medical practice. Problems relating to the characterisation of tissues, from an ultra-acoustic point of view, will be the focus of particular attention, in order to achieve improvements in technical construction and greater utilisation of current equipment. It is particularly important that those using this means of investigation are up to date on the safety of using ultrasound equipment, both for the patients undergoing the examination and for the operators themselves. The International School of Ultrasonology offers an opportunity for the dissemination of knowledge and provides an opportunity for the in-depth study and discussion of one or more topics (determined from time to time by the experts) in the presence of students, graduates, and hospital technicians. The school will therefore be a complement to the teaching that individual lecturers, associations, or societies have already organised or intend to organise.
