Diagnostic ultrasound is the most widely used imaging modality, with new emerging applications constantly in development in medicine. Technological advances and training enable greater access and faster diagnosis, creating healthier lives for all.
ASUM provides ongoing education, events and standards across all disciplines of diagnostic ultrasound. We recognise and acknowledge the many generous volunteers who enable ASUM to provide these essential resources to the broader ultrasound community to deliver quality patient care and outcomes.
The Society is affiliated with the World Federation for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology (WFUMB) and has strong links with ISUOG, BMUS, AIUM, EFSUMB, MASU, AFSUMB, ASE & FLAUS ultrasound societies. ASUM is unique in that it brings together a range of views, skills and experience of an extensive, multi-disciplinary group of healthcare professionals, involving all aspects of diagnostic ultrasound. The breadth of experience and expertise found within ASUM is unequalled by any other organisation in the field.
