"A unique contribution to the science"
"Every year EuroEcho gives me the opportunity to be on the edge, to catch the wind of the current research projects, to understand the direction where ideas and opportunities are moving. It is a unique contribution to the science, an open space where participants can easily exploit the results of research, an event where education is always provided. I have attended all the appointments at EuroEcho since the first edition in 1997 in Prague and each edition was an extraordinary exciting experience. The congress is always planned for the value of attendees, which results into an enthusiastic active participation. We have grown up year after year adding new initiatives, but always with the same colloquial, interactive, and friendly atmosphere. EuroEcho was strategic in building the structure and pivotal for the continuous growth of the European echo community.
During my professional journey I had the privilege and opportunity to be involved in the development of 3-D echocardiography. It was amazing to be part of the team at the Thoraxcenter in Rotterdam, aiming to add the third dimension in cardiac ultrasound. As it often happens in research, we faced challenges and difficulties that were tackled by a common collegial approach. When I look back to those days, when I remember all the time spent in the Experimental Lab, when I think of the emotion in getting a 3-D picture after hours of image post-processing, I am more and more convinced that "what’s advanced today will be routine tomorrow"."
