The role of ultrasound in modern medicine and healthcare IT has increased monumentally over the last 50 years.  Whereas extremely invasive surgical procedures were required for the diagnosis and analyzing of a great deal of illnesses and diseases, now ultrasound technologies allow for the fast imaging and diagnosis without the invasive surgery.  Staying up-to-date with the technologies, cases and innovations occurring within the field is vital to the performance and efficiency of operations.

A great method of staying current with the ever-changing world of radiology and cardiology is to leverage associations that are dedicated to compiling and synthesizing data into easy-to-consume formats.

One association doing just that is the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine.

American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine

The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine, or AIUM, has been officially established since 1952.  A the time of their establishment, the use of ultrasound as a tool for diagnosis was still very much in its infancy and the need for an association to keep pace with the quickly innovating field was at hand.

Since then, the AIUM has been advancing the art and science of ultrasound in medicine and research through educational, scientific and also professional activities.  Now, they remain one of the most successful, reputable and creditable associations in the world due to the involvement of ultrasound professionals, physicians, scientists, engineers and healthcare IT personnel.

The AIUM also puts out the Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine that provides timely information on tests, technologies, case studies and news.  They also host conventions, like the upcoming AIUM Convention that will take place in New York City in April.

Feel free to check out the AIUM for access to current and innovative news on all things Ultrasound and its use in diagnosis and treatment.  If you’re looking for more, check out this of other healthcare IT and radiology associations.
