The Faces of WCUME

The first World Congress on Ultrasound in Medical Education has come to a close.  The event was a great success, with excellent plenary sessions in the morning, hands-on teaching in the afternoon and southern hospitality in the evening.  It was nice to see so many familiar faces, and although we couldn’t capture everyone, we had to record a few for posterity.
