“My dream: to make that wonderful technique available to every specialist interested.”

The mastermind behind Sonocampus. As a neurologist specializing in electrodiagnostics and neuromuscular disorders, she was immediately fascinated by the possibilities opening up with ultrasound. Always curious to improve, believing in only the highest standard of care, together with an affectionate mindset for those we take care of are her distinctive characteristics. During years of mastering and publishing on neuromuscular ultrasound, she dreamed about overcoming the limited access to experts in this field – which is how the idea of this platform was born. Now, after a lot of work and a long journey, Sonocampus is here to serve you.
