It is a great honor and pleasure for me to have been selected to organize the XXVII SIDUO Congress, to be held in Puerto Varas, Chile, in November 2018.

I hope that the Congress will be as outstanding as previous ones. I invite you to participate actively in the various seminars and presentations, while also enjoying the beautiful landscapes of southern Chile, north gate of Patagonia.

Majestic Mount Osorno and the spectacular Lake Llanquihue will be the ideal backdrop for this world ultrasonography gathering.

Welcome to the XXVII SIDUO, and I urge you to take an active part in the academic, social and cultural activities available at this international congress.

Sincerely,

Dr. Alfredo Triviño Lavanderos
President XXVII SIDUO Congress
