The International Society for Therapeutic Ultrasound (ISTU) is a non-profit organization founded in 2001 to increase and diffuse knowledge of therapeutic ultrasound to the scientific and medical community, and to facilitate the translation of therapeutic ultrasound techniques into the clinical area for the benefit of patients worldwide.

ISTU 2021: Gyeongju, Korea on June 6 - 9, 2021

The 20th Annual International Symposium for Therapeutic Ultrasound was a great success! 

We proudly hosted our first ever hybrid symposium where we offered both virtual and in person attendance in beautiful Gyeongju, Korea on June 6 - 9, 2021.  We welcomed almost 500 people for this year's conference.

Sessions were broadcast at Korean Standard Times, and then also available on demand to meet attendee scheduling needs. Attendees had access to the recordings via video demand for all of the sessions on our Virtual Platform.
