Welcome to the website of the NSRG

This website provides relevant news about ongoing work of the Neurosonology Research Group of the World Federation of Neurology. It contains teaching programs, upcoming meetings, updates on literature and guidelines as well as fellowship offers. We aim to stimulate the communication within our members and to attract all those interested in neurosonology to join us.
