The 24th European symposium on Ultrasound Contrast Imaging is held from 17-18 January 2019 in the Hilton Hotel, Rotterdam, The Netherlands. Latest developments on ultrasound contrast agent imaging in both the clinic and research are presented. Topics in previous editions covered safety, clinical cases, therapy, drug delivery, vascular imaging, molecular imaging, imaging techniques, and technology. The conference is well known for its good organization in a small-scale setting, which invites for lively discussions between the participants throughout the day. Special attention is given to young investigators during the poster presentations. Prices are awarded for best clinical and technical poster. The deadline for submission of abstracts for oral and poster presentations is Friday November 23th, 2018. For more information, registration and abstract submission, please contact  Mieke Pruijsten.
