The International Breast Ultrasound School (IBUS) was
formed in 1991, and is incorporated in Switzerland.
The goal of IBUS is to improve the standards of breast
through the provision of high-quality educational programmes,
and since its formation, it has established itself as the leading
providor of a range of teaching programmes
covering all aspects of breast ultrasound.
The activities of IBUS are governed by the Executive Council
which consists of the Executive Committee
together with the Administration Board and the Advisory Board.
IBUS seminars consist of high-quality didactic
presentations with international
and where possible practical workshops are included to give
participants "hands-on" experience.
With each programme, comprehensive booklets are published
containing manuscripts of lecture topics,
and certificates are provided confirming participant attendance.
IBUS is committed to a series of four to six seminars
each year in various parts of the world,
and is planning more extensive educational programmes in future
either held as stand-alone seminars or attached to major
international scientific meetings.
Seminars have been held in Africa, Asia, Europe, and in
North and South America.
IBUS is collaborating with a number of ultrasound societies
and educational organizations
in order to raise the standards of breast ultrasound,
and to improve knowledge on thel use of imaging and Doppler
techniques for breast disease assessment.
Reading material included in this site consists of book and article references
(1900 to 2000) selected to provide an overview

An updated list of selected reading materials
has been included (2012).
The views expressed are those of the authors, and IBUS

in the equipment
specifications - 1996 edition.
In 1999, IBUS published the Guidelines for the
Ultrasonic Examination of the Breast
in order to set standards which would improve the use of
ultrasound for breast disease assessment.
IBUS has produced a set of case studies in which
mammograms and ultrasonic images are correlated,
and the relevance of the imaging findings placed in a clinical
