Established in 1997, the Distinguished Sonographer Award is a means of recognizing and honoring current or retired AIUM members who have significantly contributed to the growth and development of medical ultrasound. This annual presentation honors an individual whose outstanding contributions to the development of medical ultrasound warrant special merit.
A fellow of the AIUM, the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS), and the Society of Vascular Technology (SVT), Ms Neumyer has served admirably in leadership roles for these 3 organizations, as a member of the Board of Governors, the Board of Directors, and president, respectively. In addition, she has demonstrated her belief in the importance of vascular imaging excellence by her active involvement in numerous committees addressing issues of education, training, bioeffects, risk management, and practice guidelines.
Currently chief executive officer and international director of Vascular Diagnostic Educational Services, Ms Neumyer’s commitment to vascular imaging is prominent. Excelling in this field has brought her numerous awards, including the Award for Excellence in Scientific Research (twice) from what is now the Society for Vascular Ultrasound (SVU), the Distinguished Service Award from the SVT, the Burnham Editor’s Award for outstanding contributions to the field of vascular technology, the J. Baker Pioneer Award in Medical Sonography from the SDMS, and the SVU Professional Achievement Award.
