13th Meeting of the Society

Genova, Italy

May 10th-13th, 2008 

The 13th Meeting of the ESNCH took place in Genova, Italy, May 10th - 13th 2008, and Dr. Massimo Del Sette has been our host. The meeting preceded the European Stroke Conference in Nice, France, not far away from Genova.
Genova is the main city of the Liguria Region, a narrow strip of land enclosed between the sea and the Alps and the Appennines mountains. Liguria has a winding arched extension from Ventimiglia to La Spezia and is characterized by an alternating series of magnificient high coast-lines and flat sandy coast-lines, while in the interior the steep hills meet up with the Appenines peaks. For its abundance of natural beauty it has been given various names: “Paradise Gulf”, “Siren Bay”, “Bay of Silence”, “Bay of fairy tales”, “Sea’s echo”.  
Genova has been a gorgeous place to meet, because it is rich in historical places, with a famous harbour, picturesque palaces and churches; it hosts the largest Acquarium in Europe. The Congress took place in the old harbour area, very close to the center of the city and to the Acquarium. The 13th Meeting of the ESNCH has been an excellent occasion for a complete update in these areas of research.The conference was a great opportunity for sharing knowledge on new developments in neurovascular ultrasound, from acute stroke to parenchyma and perfusiom imaging, from monitoring to particular fiels such as non-vascular use of ultrasound. More than 330 participants from 35 different countries, 60 invited speakers and 128 excellent platform and poster presentations reflected the interest of the scientific community in the areas covered by our Society. Attendees came from Western, Central and Eastern Europe, as well as from North America and Asia. After the success in Budapest, a theoretical and hands-on test was organized in cooperation eith the Neurosonology Research Group of the World Federation of Neurology: many applied to achieve the International Certification in Neurosonology.
