Background

A word from the IBUS Executive.

Breast Ultrasound imageThe International Breast Ultrasound School (IBUS) was formed in 1991, and since its formation, IBUS has become the leading international provider of a range of teaching programmes covering breast imaging and image-guided interventional procedures. IBUS is incorporated in Switzerland as a non-profit organization and activities are governed by the Executive Council.

The goals of IBUS are to improve the standards of breast imaging through the provision of high-quality educational programmes with a faculty specialising in the use of imaging techniques for benign and malignant breast disease detection, diagnosis and management. Courses consist of high-quality didactic presentations, panel discussions, interactive session, and include practical workshops to give participants hands-on experience.

IBUS collaborates with medical societies and educational organizations in order to raise the standards of breast imaging, and to improve knowledge on the use of ultrasonic imaging and Doppler techniques for breast disease assessment.

In 2011, IBUS celebrated the 20th anniversary of its formation, and has provided one hundred courses up to the end of 2013 to more than 10,000 participants.
