September 23, 2015 – As part of the second “Summer School: Percussion under the Palms”, 60 students from the Medical University of Graz were able to gain practical experience using the technique of sonography (diagnostic imaging with ultrasound). The equipment used in the exercises was provided by the leading Austrian provider of ultrasound systems, MIDES.

The Summer School took place for the second time in the main auditorium center at the Medical University of Graz in mid-September. The event was organized by the student initiative “Sono4You“, which aims to present the study topic of sonography in more depth outside of the curriculum. Tutors from many disciplines and the Graz medical technology company, MIDES, supported the Summer School with technical know-how, and MIDES additionally provided twelve ultrasonic devices from its own product portfolio. The work conducted using the Premium Model Samsung RS80A was a special highlight for the students.

“It was very important to us to offer as many different types of ultrasonic devices as possible, since the young doctors will come into contact with a diversity of devices in practice. We are pleased that we were able to support the sonography training provided at the Summer School with our technical know-how,” said Alexander Dutzi, MIDES Director Sales & Service Ultrasound.
