Dear Colleagues,

It is a special pleasure to introduce the first issue of Ultrasound International Open in a still difficult year – a year, in which many of us had concerns and clinical tasks reaching far beyond basic or clinical science on ultrasonography (US). Thus, I am delighted to draw your attention to some interesting and important new papers teaching us on various aspects of our every dayʼs US practice.
