Our thoughts are with Christchurch

Our thoughts continue to go out to our colleagues on the front line of healthcare and ultrasound community, as well as those who continue to care for victims, their families and friends.
Investment in Medicare for Ultrasound service to improve patient access and outcomes
On 17 March 2019, the Australian Government announced that it will help reduce the out of pocket medical expenses for Australian families needing life-saving scans like ultrasounds and X-rays with an almost $200 million investment. The Media Release from Minister Hunt is available on our website.
The ASUM CEO and ASUM Councillor will attend the Budget announcement in Canberra next week and will update the membership and ultrasound community on any further changes to this.
