Sign Up for one of the 2024 Courses organized by the IHU Strasbourg!

The Institute of Image-Guided Surgery (IHU Strasbourg) continues to develop its training offer in Therapeutic Endoscopic Ultrasound (TEUS) and invites you to attend one of the 2024 courses.

Therapeutic Endoscopic Ultrasound (TEUS) has been established as a new reference technique for the minimally invasive treatment of digestive pathologies. This has led to a growing need for specialized training of echoendoscopists wishing to work on models that reflect the reality of their clinical practice.

The IHU Strasbourg offers advanced level courses where practical focus is fundamental. These courses are intended for experienced echoendoscopists who would like to train in TEUS with internationally renowned experts. Training is based on pathological in-vivo models elaborated to mimic the different pathologies encountered and to facilitate learning how to treat these using Endoscopic Ultrasound.

In 2024, the IHU Strasbourg is proposing ENTEC-IHU, a unique 2-day course with practical training by a panel of international experts. Participants will benefit from 7 hours of Hands-on training with simulated models and get to practice up to 10+ procedures. Training sessions take place in an exceptional multimodal imaging platform (scanner CT, angio CT, IRM and C-ARM) where participants are able to access the latest generation equipment in EUS.


  • Progress from Diagnostic EUS to Therapeutic EUS.
  • To understand the full potential of Therapeutic EUS in the daily practice of endoscopy.
  • 100% hands-on training on original and realistic in-vivo models.

7 hours of Hands-on training – Up to 10 procedures:

  • Multiple simple and complex cystogastrostomies – cold and hot systems
  • Gallbladder drainage
