On the occasion of the 30th EUROSON Congress in Poznan Poland the EFSUMB Past Presidents were invited to share in a history of ultrasound session. Not all were able to be present and it is with sadness that we report the recent death of Francis Weill who was not only EFSUMB President in 1984 – 1987 but also WFUMB President in 1988. We enjoyed presentations from PP 11 Harald Lutz on the History of US in Germany East and West, PP 10 Sturla Eik-Nes on the Scandinavian Perspective, PP 9 Luigi Bolondi who talked about 3 EFSUMB Presidents and 2 EUROSONs all from Bologna! PP 6 David Evans gave a very short history of the Doppler effect and PP 4 Christian Nolsoe talked about the Interventional Ultrasound Pioneers in Europe. PP 2 Christoph F Dietrich introduced the session with PP1 Odd Helge GIlja and plans are afoot to preserve this history.
