Medical Ultrasound Awareness Month

MUAM is held annually in October to create awareness of the role diagnostic medical sonographers play in the medical community and to educate the public about medical ultrasound and its many uses in healthcare. MUAM is a joint effort of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM), American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS), American Society of Echocardiography (ASE), Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI), Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS), and Society for Vascular Ultrasound (SVU). The SDMS’ 2016 MUAM theme is “Make Waves. Learn where we’ve been. Be a part of our future”. How are you celebrating #MUAM16? Let us know! And take a look below at the video we created to help spread the word about Ultrasound at Mizzou!
