Plano, Texas
– The Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS) is seeking feedback on the second draft of the proposed Guidelines for Infection Prevention and Control in Sonography.

At the end of 2017, the SDMS Sonography Disinfection & Infection Control Task Force developed draft guidelines consistent with existing regulations, standards, and current best practices. In early 2018, the Task Force shared the draft with sonography and infection prevention and control-related organizations and manufacturers for input. The Task Force met to finalize the second draft in early 2019 and is sharing that draft with SDMS members, and sonography and infection control-related organizations and manufacturers for input. The final guidelines will be circulated for organizational endorsement or support.
