"Working with ISUOG has been a lifetime opportunity. The Society has helped me provide better knowledge of Ultrasonography in Obstetrics and Gynecology to our part of the world. In 2012 I organised ISUOG’S 8th International Symposium in New Delhi attracting more than 600 new members. ISUOG’s Symposium will be returning to New Delhi in 2015 and we are expecting to add more than 600 new members to ISUOG again. Our improved relations and efforts will give strength to the wonderful and herculean efforts of ISUOG in improving fetal and maternal health across the world."
