Korean Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics And Gynecology

The History of the Korean Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology (KSUOG)

In Korea, the society of ultrasound was first established in 1980 with radiology as the focal point. Then in the late 1980s, transvaginal ultrasound was introduced in the field of obstetrics and gynecology. The need for society increased substantially as many obstetricians and gynecologists in South Korea began to conduct researches on the utilization of ultrasound. The serious discussion over the establishment of The Korean Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology (KSUOG) began in November, 1995 after Professor Asim Kurjak, the secretary of International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology (ISUOG) at that time, made the suggestion during the ISUOG meeting.

On January 17th, 1997, the promotional event for foundation of the Korean Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology was held at the Ramada Renaissance Hotel with 44 obstetricians and gynecologists. Furthermore, as the ultrasonic diagnosis became internationally accepted and developed, the KSUOG hosted the General Assembly and the Annual Congress Meeting on March 6th, 1997 to discuss and supplement the knowledge of utilizing ultrasound for diagnosis and treatment.

Through the event, the KSUOG elected Professor Bok Hee Woo as the president and Dr. Hosun Jung as the auditor. Also, the KSUOG enacted and deliberated regulations and principles of the society. Afterwards, the KSUOG elevated as a legitimate academic society through appointment of executive board and presentation of the KSUOG’s official logo
