The 1st ever scientific meeting for the year 2015 kicks off with the much awaited OB ultrasound workshop with a little hands-on. The Ultrasound Society of the Philippines felt the need to reintroduce this specialty among the trainees as this is being rapidly taken over by OB sonologists and away from Radiosonologists. Little exposure is being experienced during residency as well as fellowship training period. Thus, confidence is not established and many of the graduates fear to accept OB ultrasound examination during their practice. As Radiologists, we should be able to do all types of ultrasound examination because this is what we are trained for. We, as Radiologists, should be at par or better than the other subspecialties(like OB, rehab, orthopaedic surgeons doing ultrasound). And how do we do that? Keep training, keep learning, strive for excellence! That is the only way to regain what is ours. So that in the end, we can do scanning side by side with the clinicians with confidence. Our speaker is Dr. Christopher Joy A. Aromin, who happens to be the chair of the USP scientific meeting also. He has a lot in mind to help the trainees so he volunteered to lecture. The title of the lecture is "OB Ultrasound WHEN, WHY and HOW?".

After 1 hour of lecture, a live demonstration (actual scanning) with real pregnant patients, projected into a big screen, was done, with the help of Drs Julio T. Dumo, Jr and Ignacio S. Valeriano. Actual demo scanning was done with the help of our industrial partner, Biosolutions. Total number of attendees is around 100 (residents, fellows, consultants and few ultrasound techs).

As one of the Board Examination subject, Vascular/Doppler ultrasound is considered the waterloo of most of the Utz fellows-in-training and even among Radiology residents. Because of this, the USP Board felt that it is timely to devote time and effort in this subject matter. Thus, we have invited guest speakers to discuss on this delicate topics. Hope to see you there!

The first ever, out-of-town hands-on workshop of the Ultrasound Society of the Philippines, in cooperation with the Central and Northern Luzon Chapter of the Philippine College of Radiology(PCR), was held in Leisure Coast Resort, Bonuan Binloc, Dagupan City, on May 31, 2014. This is in line with the USP objective of reaching out to the members who practice in the provinces.

Speakers were Drs Lino Santiago Pabillo, Cesar Co and Nel Bolante-Bacalso. The said event was well attended and welcomed by members of the Central and Northern Luzon Chapter. The audiences were treated with lots of food, especialy fresh bangus, and lots of entertainment!

The present USP Board of Trustees is geared towards establishing guidelines/standardized or a unified format in the interpretation of Ultrasound results so that clinicians would have a better understanding/grasp of what we, as Radiologists, are talking about.

In so doing, during a recent Philippine College of Surgeons Annual Convention, questions have been raised as regards to the uniformity in Thyroid ultrasound interpretation.

During that Convention, Surgeons discussed what information/data that they need/require from a thyroid ultrasound result. Dr Pabillo, immediate past President of USP, attended the said convention, and thus, willingly offered to lecture and share it with UTZ trainees (residents and fellows) on Thyroid Ultrasound with emphasis on Results Protocol. We've added TIRADS Classification as an added knowledge for future reference.
