IVUSS-veterinary ultrasound continuing education, meetings, hands-on labs


The International Veterinary Ultrasound Society’s goals are to promote research and provide education in ultrasonography to all groups performing diagnostic ultrasound in veterinary medicine. The primary method by which the society does this is through the organization of an annual meeting that typically offers between 12 and 16 hours of veterinary ultrasound continuing education in lectures and hands-on labs.

Excellence in Veterinary Ultrasound Imaging:

IVUSS promotes the advancement of knowledge and high standards of veterinary small animal diagnostic ultrasound imaging and interpretation. Toward this purpose, the Society will:

Associate and affiliate into one organization doctors of veterinary medicine, registered diagnostic medical sonographers, veterinary technicians, and, with special approval of the board, other individuals engaged in the practice of, or who have special interest in, the field of veterinary small animal diagnostic ultrasound.

Establish and promote uniform standards and guidelines for the practice of veterinary small animal ultrasound and interpretation.

Foster and encourage education, research and scientific progress in veterinary small animal diagnostic ultrasound and interpretation.

Disseminate information pertinent to veterinary small animal diagnostic imaging and interpretation.

Covid-19 Update

Due to the corona virus pandemic, the IVUSS Board, after very careful consideration, has decided to postpone the 2020 Romania conference until fall of 2021. With the infection rate still rising and a quick resolution being unlikely, we believe the economic impact, health, travel, and safety of our members, speakers, and sponsors will be too negatively affected to hold a meaningful conference.

We are working on next year's final dates as well as re-confirming Drs. Penninck and Bonagura as speakers. We will update this page once those dates are confirmed as well as communicating through membership emails.

IVUSS is also working on a possible web-based continuing education program for 2020, and will keep you posted on that status through membership letters.

In the meantime, keep safe, keep healthy, and keep scanning!
