Dermatological Ultrasound Guidelines

Dermatological Ultrasound is progressively being implemented in both radiology and dermatology services in Europe. The possibility of sonographic diagnosis of cutaneous, hair and nail diseases with high frequency probes and the rising number of aesthetic procedures complications have evidenced the need for this application in the contemporary ultrasound arena.

As a result the first Dermatologic Ultrasound Course recently hosted by EFSUMB that took place in Madrid ULC 1st and 2nd June 2018 was a success with more than 80 participants both radiologists and dermatologists who were interested in acquiring the principles and main applications of this technique in a clinical setting.

As dermatological ultrasound is here to stay, guidelines of proper technical and clinical application have become necessary. In that sense. ESUMB is fostering the elaboration of consensus guidelines of Dermatological Ultrasound with the cooperation of expert radiologists, dermatologists and sonographers working in the dermatological ultrasound knowledge field.
