SECHO dates its routes back to the Yugoslavian School for the Application of Ultrasound. The International School of Ultrasound was first founded by Prof. Dr. Asim Kurjak in Dubrovnik. Since the majority of the students and doctors were from Yugoslavia, Dr. Zoran Sretenović, decided to open another, this time a Yugoslavian School of Ultrasound in 1985.
The Yugoslavian School for the Application of Ultrasound was offering various programs for all specialties and levels. It was established in Kragujevac and as the head doc. Dr Atanasije Tasa Marković was appointed.
Due to the political situation and events, the Yugoslavian School for the Application of Ultrasound was closed in early 2000. Nevertheless, the Yugoslavian School for the Application of Ultrasound fostered numerous professionals, who carried their work in all parts of the world and was the first of its kind.
The main communication channel currently is our Newsletter, but in the future, we are going to publish a magazine. The main focus of the magazine will be promoting the guidelines of EFSUMB, besides our practical experiences and new accomplishments in the field of Ultrasound.
