The Leading Edge in
Diagnostic Ultrasound
Annual Conference
May 12-14, 2020
Harrah's Resort, Atlantic City, NJ

Thomas Jefferson University Hospital is continuing to closely monitor all developments related to the COVID-19 respiratory disease. We are proactively taking steps aimed at protecting the safety and wellbeing of conference attendees, faculty and staff.

In order to do our part in taking the necessary social distancing precautions to limit the spread of this and other illnesses, and out of an abundance of caution, we strongly advise against Jefferson supported in-person gatherings where we are anticipating 30 or more attendees through May 12, 2020.

Therefore, the Leading Edge in Diagnostic Ultrasound Conference, May 12-14, 2020 has been cancelled.

The Leading Edge is the annual educational conference of the Jefferson Ultrasound Radiology Education Institute. The conference provides updates on the major specialty areas and overviews of the "hot" topics in diagnostic ultrasound. The Leading Edge program has established a reputation for excellence since its debut in 1980. The program is designed to meet the educational and CME needs of physicians, sonographers, vascular technologists, nurse midwives and students. Parallel tracks allow the attendees to create a "custom" program that addresses the areas of most interest to them. The major themes that will be covered in the 2020 Leading Edge program include Women's Imaging, Vascular Imaging and Doppler, a Principles Tune-Up, Musculoskeletal Ultrasound, Contrast Agents and Abdominal Ultrasound.

The academic program is complimented by a large exhibit area where manufacturers display their latest diagnostic equipment. Please note that Continental Breakfast will provided each day of the Leading Edge Conference.  Coffee breaks each day and a reception on Wednesday evening will be held in the exhibit hall, providing a great opportunity to shop for a book, learn about new types of supplies, or appraise the latest in ultrasound equipment. Please join us in Atlantic City, New Jersey, USA, at the Harrah's Resort for the 2020 Leading Edge Conference.
