The WFUMB 2017 TAIPEI will provide an international platform for physicians, researchers and clinical professionals to exchange ideas, share experiences and interact with world renowned experts. It will highlight the latest cutting-edge knowledge and innovative skills in medical ultrasound, such as ultrasound-assisted techniques for interventional procedures, real-time 3-dimensional ultrasound, contrast ultrasound, elastography, speckle tracking etc. . Most importantly, your active participation will render the congress much more fruitful and successful.

Beyond the scientific programs, we will also provide attractive social activities and tours so that you can enjoy your stay in Taipei. Taipei is a lovely and friendly city full of eastern culture and old traditions as well as western infrastructure and modern innovations. The top tourist's favorite spots include National Palace Museum, National Sun Yat-Sen Memorial Hall, Freedom Square (National Chiang Kai-Shek Memorial Hall), Yangmingshan National Park, Taipei 101 and famous Night Markets with a variety of delicious, price-friendly cuisine. Many of these spots are within walking distance from the congress venue. Remember to bring your family to explore the wide spectrum of this exhilarating, non-sleeping city.
