New and Enhanced AIUM Practice Guidelines
September 20, 2012
From the September 20, 2012 President's LetterAIUM Practice Guidelines
It is a pleasure to announce that the AIUM Practice Guideline for the Performance of a Focused Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Scan
has been developed. This guideline was created to provide assistance to practitioners performing focused ultrasound studies of the female pelvis in the practice of reproductive medicine and infertility.
I would especially like to thank the American College of Nurse-Midwives, American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, American College of Osteopathic Obstetricians and Gynecologists, American Society for Reproductive Medicine–Society for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, and Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses. Their valuable time, effort, and knowledge helped bring this document to fruition. Special thanks to Joshua Copel, MD, who directed the task force and coordinated the group involvement in the guideline’s development.
As you are aware, we have been enhancing our existing guidelines with images and interactive elements as well as adding an online CME test that provides an opportunity to earn up to 0.5 AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™
(free for AIUM members.) The following guidelines have been enhanced thus far: Neonatal Spine, Obstetric, Scrotal, and Neurosonography in Neonates and Infants
