AIUM practice parameters are intended to provide the medical ultrasound community with guidelines for the performance and recording of high-quality ultrasound examinations. The parameters reflect what the AIUM considers the minimum criteria for a complete examination in each area but are not intended to establish a legal standard of care.
The AIUM currently offers its practice parameters in two forms:
PDF—read online or download for later (No CME credit)
Video Tutorial—These step-by-step instructional videos show users how to adhere to the parameters. Video tutorials are available for purchase and vary in the number of CME credits.
The AIUM also publishes Training Guidelines. These are not eligible for CME credits.
