Thank you for a successful Symposium!

The 21st Annual International Symposium on Therapeutic Ultrasound was held on June 7 - 10, 2022 at the University of Toronto! This year's Symposium was a hybrid meeting ~ offering both virtual and in-person attendance for local participants and many from around the world that will be able to attend in person. ISTU 2022 welcomed over 500 attendees ~ the most highly attended meeting in our history!

If you attended the symposium, you have access to all the meeting content and videos of the sessions until December 7, 2022 via the Virtual Platform.

This year’s annual symposium featured a wide range of scientific talks and programs that allowed participants to take home with them something truly valuable and interesting. Renowned experts in the field of therapeutic ultrasound gave talks on the issues and challenges currently facing both scientific and clinical applications.
