16th Meeting of the ESNCH

The 16th Meeting of the ESNCH was held in Munich, Germany, on May 20th – 23rd, 2011.

The president of the meeting was Professor Eva Bartels, the former congress secretary of the very first meeting in 1996 which also took place in the Bavarian capital.

In 77 invited lectures and oral presentations the organizers and speakers focused on clinical applications of neurosonology and promising new therapies. 
This year’s Lecture of Excellence was given by T. Liebig on mechanical recanalization in acute stroke. Further topics covered a wide spectrum reaching from genetics in stroke to a critical review of the so called chronic cerebro-spinal venous insufficiency, or the potential role of modern information technology in education and practice, as well as novel examination techniques and hardware.

118 Poster presentations completed this revitalizing program.

All in all the success of the preceding congress in Madrid with growing numbers of attendees and newly registered members continued: 410 registered participants from 50 countries joined the meeting. 146 colleagues registered for the tutorials. 43 colleagues took the examination for the International Certification in Neurosonology, 16 (37%) were able to pass this challenging test.

The meeting was rounded down by an unforgettable welcome reception in the Bavarian Parliament underlined by a beautiful sunset over the city of Munich. This was followed by a tasty Bavarian dinner supported with a rousing local á-cappella-band “Cash-n-Go” the next evening.

Altogether, this successful event will stay in memory for a long time due to the outstanding scientific, social and cultural contributions by all participants.

A comprehensive overview of the latest discoveries and knowledge in neurosonology and of therapeutic strategies in this field, based on scientific contributions to the 16th ESNCH Meeting will be published by Eva Bartels, Susanne Bartels and Holger Poppert (Eds.) as a hard cover book entitled “New Trends in Cerebral Hemodynamics – an Update” in Elsevier publisher in summer 2012. All articles will also be available online as the First issue of volume 1 of Perspectives in Medicine (
