The “Italian Society of Urological and Nephrological Ultrasound – S.I.E.U.N.“ was founded in 1981 with the aim of promoting and disseminating ultrasound studies of the urinary tract in physiological and pathological conditions.
In the most recent years has changed its definition to the Italian Society of Integrated Diagnostics in Urology, Andrology, Nephrology and has broadened its horizons towards technical-scientific research on ultrasound (particularly in the diagnostic and therapeutic field, from the differential diagnosis perspective), not excluding both topics of surgical and pharmacological therapy and topics of prevention.
S.I.E.U.N. organizes a National congress every two years, study meetings, conferences, CEM (Continuing Education in Medicine), courses and promotes surveys and studies.
SIEUN is affiliated with ESUI (European Society of Urological Imaging).
