Dear participants and guests of the International Medical Forum 2015!
Life and health is undoubtedly the higher values of civilization. New challenges for health care system (HCS) of Ukraine are issued by time and “HCS Reforming Strategy”, which was declared recently at the state level. Ultrasonic diagnostics, which touches practically all clinical fields, can not ignore the time challenges.
War - traumatic epidemic and widespread adoption of ultrasound FAST-protocol is that what saves the lives. Political and economic and social disturbances require directing the efforts of medicine in general and Ultrasonic diagnostics in particular to identify and support the most common infectious and non-infectious diseases: diffuse liver disease (hepatitis, fatty disease, toxic and autoimmune damages), tumor and non-tumoral processes in mamma, thyroid and prostate, problems of women's and men's health, diseases of the cardiovascular system, gastrointestinal tract, nervous and musculoskeletal systems.
Thanks to the latest technological achievements, ultrasonic diagnostics become one of the leading directions in solving these problems. Ukrainian Association of Ultrasound Diagnostics Specialists support actively International Medical Forum 2015 as an important event in the information field of modern medicine of Ukraine. Ultrasonic industry demonstrates the achievements of world and national science and technology at the exhibition stands, schools and workshops. Ultrasonic diagnostics has the great role for health care system, especially in the development of family and private medicine.
Today, ultrasonic diagnostics can affect the endpoints and quality of life of the patients with the most part of the mentioned nosology. It is necessary to note the current trend of development - Elastography.
Elastography modes (compression and rotational wave) enable the digital instrumental “remote palpation of organs” to determinate the tissue stiffness qualitatively and quantitatively that is diagnostically important information. Elastography allows objectify data about fibrosis, steatosis and cirrhosis, remodeling and myocardial sclerosis of the arteries and make the detection, differential diagnosis and monitoring of treatment effectiveness of tumors much easier. In particular it is introduced to BIRADS and ThyRADS categories.
It is important to test, approve and implement the national reports of performance of the full range of ultrasonic techniques, industry information, as well as remote consulting, development of network thinking and communication of specialists through Ukrainian portal of ultrasonic diagnostics www.ultrasound.net.ua.
We wish clinicians and specialists of ultrasonic diagnostics communication in format of ultrasound equipment stand presentations, lectures and workshops at Medical Forum 2015 became the source of mastering the new techniques, getting professional knowledge and achievements.
