Introduction

Giovanna Ferraioli, MD is a researcher at Fondazione IRCCS Policlinico San Matteo, Medical School University of Pavia, (Italy). Her research interests include elastography in diffuse liver diseases, noninvasive assessment of liver steatosis, ultrasound contrast agents, and Doppler in portal hypertension.
Dr. Ferraioli received her medical degree from Naples University, Italy. In 1988-89 she completed a research fellowship at the Yale University, USA, with Prof. Kenneth JW Taylor and Prof. Roberto J Groszmann.
She is the coordinator of the Ultrasound School at Fondazione IRCCS San Matteo Hospital Foundation, Medical School of the University of Pavia (Italy), and co-director of the EFSUMB Ultrasound Learning Center (ULC) at the same Institution.
Dr. Ferraioli has delivered several invited lectures in her area of expertise to international audiences.
She is member of the editorial board of European Radiology, World Journal of Gastroenterology, Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine, Journal of ULtrasound, International Journal of Radiology, and she’s a referee for more than 60 international journals.
She has been appointed General Secretary of MASU (Mediterranean and African Society of Ultrasound) for the triennium 2011-2013 and 2013-2015.
Dr. Ferraioli has been a member of the Education Committee of the World Federation for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (WFUMB) for the triennium 2013-2015, a member of the WFUMB expert panel for the guidelines on elastography and a member of the expert panel for the use of elastography in the assessment of diffuse liver disease convened by the Society of Radiologists in Ultrasound (SRU). She’s a member of the EFSUMB expert team for the guidelines on liver elastography, a member of the WFUMB panel for the update of the guidelines on liver elastography, and a member of the QIBA initiative in shear wave speed in diffuse liver diseases.
She's visiting Professor at "Victor Babes” University of Medicine and Pharmacy, Timisoara (Romania), honorary member of the Romanian Society of Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (SRUMB), Secretary for the Elastography Community of Practice for the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM), and member of AIUM Liver Fat Quantification Force.
Dr. Ferraioli has published several scientific articles in international peer-reviewed journals, including Hepatology, Gastroenterology, Gut, Journal of Hepatology, Digestive and Liver Disease, Radiology, European Radiology, American Journal of Roentgenology, Ultrasound in Medicine & Biology.
