The Australasian Society for Ultrasound in Medicine’s vision is to create healthier lives for all by driving ultrasound excellence. Our mission is to foster a collaborative multi-disciplinary community of highly competent health professionals who deliver ultrasound excellence.

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.
