Awards

The AIUM annually honors individuals who have significantly contributed to the growth and development of diagnostic ultrasound.

William J. Fry Memorial Lecture

The William J. Fry Memorial Lecture Award was established by Joseph H. Holmes, MD, in 1969, and presented for the first time at the AIUM annual convention in Winnipeg that year. William J. Fry, MS, was a physicist with a strong interest in ultrasound in biology and medicine, whose innovative research efforts advanced the field of diagnostic ultrasound. One of Professor Fry's most notable contributions was the successful design of an ultrasonic system used to pinpoint lesions in the brain without damaging adjacent tissues. This ultrasonic system was later used to treat various brain pathologies, and in particular, Parkinson's disease. His impassioned interest in ultrasound led him to become president of the AIUM from 1966 until his death in 1968. The following year, the William J. Fry Memorial Lecture Award, recognizing a current or retired AIUM member who has significantly contributed, in his or her particular field, to the scientific progress of medical diagnostic ultrasound, was established in his honor.

Joseph H. Holmes Pioneer Award

In 1977, the Pioneer Award, which honored an individual who significantly contributed to the growth and development of diagnostic ultrasound, was established. This special award was renamed in 1982, to honor Joseph H. Holmes, MD, who died that year. Dr. Holmes, the first person named as an AIUM pioneer, was an important figure to both the field of diagnostic ultrasound and the AIUM. His early efforts in ultrasound research, which included tissue characterization and ultrasound's diagnostic use in polycystic kidney disease and orthopedics, helped to advance the field of ultrasound and encourage others to conduct new research. Serving the AIUM in many capacities, Dr. Holmes was president from 1968 to 1970, and was editor of the AIUM's official journal, which was then titled, the Journal of Clinical Ultrasound, for nearly 10 years. Each year the Joseph H. Holmes Pioneer Award honors two current or retired AIUM members, one in clinical science and the other in basic science.
