Dear Colleagues and Friends,

On behalf of the organizing committee, we are pleased to invite you to attend the 13th Congress of the Asian Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (AFSUMB 2018) in conjunction with ACUCI 2018 and KSUM Open 2018 to be held at the Coex in Seoul, Korea from May 23(Wed.) to 26(Sat.), 2018.

This is the second time that Korea has been given the honor to host this prestigious event since it organized the 1992 congress in Seoul. At the AFSUMB 2018, under the theme “Beyond Asia, to the World with US” a large number of professors, doctors, and distinguished leaders from Asia will get together to discuss recently emerging issues and exchange the latest information in the field of ultrasound in medicine and biology. The AFSUMB 2018 scientific program will propose high quality scientific sessions that will provide deeper knowledge and new perspectives on the field of ultrasound in medicine and biology. The program will be a highly rewarding international platform for every one of the participants, and will contribute to the enhancement of the scientific level and quality of our field.

Seoul, the host city of the AFSUMB 2018, is the capital of South Korea. Rich in historical and cultural heritage, it also offers all the possible conveniences and world-class facilities of the international megalopolis that it has become today. May, with its pleasant weather, is the best time to enjoy the beautiful natural scenery that the capital has to offer.

We look forward to welcoming you and your colleagues to the AFSUMB 2018 which promises to be meaningful and fruitful to all the participants.

Sincerely yours,

  • Joon Koo Han, M.D Congress President
    The 13th Congress of the Asian Federation of

On behalf of the organizing committee, I am pleased to invite you to the Korean Society of Thyroid Radiology (KSThR) Satellite Symposium. This symposium will be supported by the 13 th Congress of the Asian Federation of Societies for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (AFSUMB 2018) to be held in conjunction with ACUCI 2018 and KSUM Open 2018 at the Coex in Seoul, Korea from May 23(Wed) to 26(Sat), 2018.

The symposium will mark the second international KSThR thyroid conference since we hosted the first international meeting in 2012. The second symposium will propose a cutting-edge scientific program in the field of thyroid radiology, which will include current trends of TIRADS, new guidelines of core-needle biopsy, current status of US-guided ablations (ethanol, radiofrequency, laser, microwave, and HIFU), and revised RFA guidelines. In addition, introduction to Artificial Intelligence-based thyroid diagnosis will inspire your future practice and research. Finally we will organize a hands-on session that will improve your knowledge and skills to treat thyroid tumors using US-guided ablations.

The organizing committee has made every effort to offer a pertinent and relevant program, and look forward to welcoming you and your colleagues to the KSThR Satellite Symposium. I hope you will be able to join us to enjoy the conference, taste Korean food, and forge long-lasting friendships.
