Thank you for attending the International Symposium on Therapeutic Ultrasound in Lyon!

We were thrilled to gather with scientists, engineers, clinicians and industry from around the world as we came together in Lyon, France for the second joint meeting of the International Society for Therapeutic Ultrasound (ISTU) and the European Focused Ultrasound Charitable Society (EUFUS).

The 22nd Annual International Symposium on Therapeutic Ultrasound was held at the Palais de la Bourse, a listed historical monument right in the heart of Lyon, from 17th April to 20th April 2023.

The hybrid meeting offered both virtual and in-person attendance for local participants and many from around the world that will attend in person. We welcomed over 500 researchers and industry professionals from all over the world!

The Symposium featured 260 abstracts, 50 late-breaking research updates, and 193 posters.

All presentations and select session recordings are available on the meeting website until October 21, 2023.

The 2023 Annual Symposium is proudly hosted by
