The Journal of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (JDMS) is the official scholarly journal of the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS).
The JDMS is peer-reviewed and contains the latest research and information on diagnostic techniques and interpretation methods, thought-provoking case studies, practical research applications, and advances in a wide range of specialty areas. Members of the sonography community are encouraged to submit original research, case studies, and literary reviews for publication consideration. Upon acceptance for publication, SDMS continuing medical education (CME) credit may be awarded.
Each issue of the JDMS contains several SDMS CME activities. Successful completion of each activity, including passing a post-test, if there is one, earns SDMS CME credits.
The JDMS is provided to SDMS members free of charge, with access to issues dating back to 1985. Non-members can subscribe to the JDMS at the following cost for six issues per year (as of March 1, 2022, and subject to change by SAGE Publications, the publisher):
