Dear WFUMB Family Members,

I am delighted to invite all WFUMB family members to WFUMB 2021 which will be held in May 2021 in a beautiful historic and cultural city, Timișoara Romania.

WFUMB is a world federation encompassing the whole world by six regional and 93 country-based scientific societies with ultrasound specialty. It means that WFUMB has so great diversity in ultrasound and also in various other aspects including history, culture, geography, and nature. I am sure that you will feel another very unique end of the historic and cultural diversity of the world through WFUMB 2021. By learning and understanding this diversity, WFUMB will be a healthier society doing its best to fulfill its mission, “to bring sustainable ultrasound programs to the underserved areas of the world to improve global healthcare through collaboration, communication, and education”.

The best example of realizing WFUMB’s mission are the centers of education (COE). Now WFUMB runs 13 COEs including Romanian COE which is one of the most actively working center. This will be an excellent model that an ultrasound society which runs one of the WFUMB COEs hosts WFUMB congress. I trust WFUMB 2021 will be one of the best WFUMB congresses under the leadership of Congress President Ioan Sporea, EFSUMB President Adrian Saftoiu, and SRUMB President Alina Popescu. As the President of WFUMB, I will do my best and look forward to WFUMB 2021 a wonderful and memorable congress to all attendees.

WFUMB president
