We are a team of cardiologists from the medical university of Vienna / Austria but we also have strong ties to other national and international institutions, hospitals and experts.
"Give me an echo machine! I am lost without it"
Thomas, a.k.a. "Tommy" is professor at the Medical University of Vienna and heads the echo lab there. Tommy has over 20 years of echo experience. Aside from his scientific work dealing with topics such as 3D echocardiography, cardiac resynchronization therapy, speckle tracking and clinical research, he was always strongly dedicated to teaching and has done so for many years. Over the years he has seen what works and teaches it to his students.
Georg has been with us from the start when he was still a medical student. Within no time he received his MD and completed his PhD in Vascular Biology. Georg has already published numerous articles in renowned medical journals and completed a research fellowship in cardiovascular imaging at the Mount Sinai Hospital (New York, US). Most of the teaching material you will see in our courses has been optimized, proof-read and tweaked by him. He’s the sine qua non of 123sonography.

"Just do it"
Saskia is the heart and soul of 123sonography. After studying communication sciences and working in the Public Relations sector she joined the 123sonography team to support a great idea with passion. Saskia is our chief operating officer; she pulls the strings in the background and makes you feel at home. Even though Saskia is from Salzburg she lives in a "different" time zone. She gets really active at night. If you are from the other side of the "pond" don´t be surprised to receive an email without delay. Saskia takes care of all the administrative things. Without her, WE would be totally in the dark.
