Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography

Medical Ultrasound Awareness Month

Medical Ultrasound Awareness Month (MUAM) is held annually in October to increase awareness of diagnostic medical sonography and the role sonographers play in healthcare. Many organizations join the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography in promoting MUAM, including the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine, the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography, the American Society of Echocardiography, Cardiovascular Credentialing International, and the Society for Vascular Ultrasound.

The SDMS' 2024 MUAM theme is "Sonography Squad".

Celebrate the impact sonographers have on the lives of their patients.
