Ultrasound past, present and exciting future

Richard Beese, Queen Elizabeth Hospital and Kings College Hospital London

The author dedicates the talk to Prof. Cosgrove and Dr Hylton Meire, who have recently passed. Their contribution to ultrasound cannot be understated, taking ultrasound in its infancy from the bench to the patient. Both doctors researched, pioneered, published books and papers and taught ultrasound. The talk will concentrate on the history and evolution of ultrasound imaging and technology and will look to the future of this exciting versatile imaging modality. Different clinical settings of the use of ultrasound will be discussed from a perspective of austere and global locations.
