Ulrich F430 was thanked for his 4 years as a Secretary in DUDS.
DUDS has set up a Committee to look at the documentation of ultralydskanninger, Søren Torp-Pedersen is the Chairman of this Committee.
First of all, I would like to thank the Board of Directors for the great work that is created through 2008.
The magazine has gotten a boost on DUDS lay-out since thanks to our new Editor Sue Mark LAD’s hard work. We have discussed a lot about the possibility of an electronic version of the DUDS magazine.
Ulrich F430 is leaving the Board after 4 years as a Secretary and we thank you for the good and constructive cooperation.
Christian Nolsøe has made considerable efforts as next President of EFSUMB and with preparations for EUROSON 2010 in Copenhagen.
We have been a part of the year with training and quality assurance within ultralydområdet.
Many clinicians want to use ultrasound as a tool in their daily clinical work and the benefits of this are obvious. Education is, however, an important part of quality assurance. EFSUMB has rules for some of the specialities; but many clinicians believe that these rules are too extensive for it “they’ll use ultrasound to”. “Guidelines for minimum training” starts with a Level 1 (lowest level). There is a desire to introduce a “Level ½” or “Intro-level”, which also must give permission to use ultrasound at a level that is acceptable to a few DUDS ´ s recognition.
DUDS ´ s course committees are working on with the issue in cooperation with interested clinicians (enthusiasts).
DUDS has in 2008 created guidelines for Musculoskeletal Ultrasound-competencies for EFSUMB.
Danish Association of Physiotherapists in collaboration with DUDS created a special course which suits the needs physiotherapists. It is true, as in the case of other non-physicians, that they either work under medical supervision or make “measurements”.
There awaits many exciting tasks in the coming year. Just an example: Can the Ultrasound also quality assured by picture documentation?
