  • Evaluate Accreditation Case Studies
    AIUM ultrasound practice accreditation is a peer review process that allows practices to demonstrate that they meet or exceed nationally recognized standards in the performance and interpretation of diagnostic ultrasound examinations. If you are a physician or sonographer from an accredited practice, consider becoming a case reviewer. Not only is this a great learning opportunity, but you will receive a small honorarium for your efforts. At this time, we are only accepting requests from those who have interests in Musculoskeletal Ultrasound and Fetal Echocardiography. Contact Jen Drabo, BS, RDMS at jdrabo@aium.org or 800-638-5352 if you are interested.
