Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography

Medical Ultrasound Awareness Month

MUAM is held annually in October to create awareness of the role diagnostic medical sonographers play in the medical community and to educate the public about medical ultrasound and its many uses in healthcare. MUAM is a joint effort of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM), American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS), American Society of Echocardiography (ASE), Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI), Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS), and Society for Vascular Ultrasound (SVU). 

The SDMS' ​2020 MUAM theme ​is "​​United We Scan".

This year is different. Sonographers dedicate their careers to helping their patients. Now with the global economic impact of COVID-19, sonographers need a helping hand.

The SDMS will donate all profits from United We Scan sales to the SDMS Foundation for grants and scholarships that benefit sonographers. Your MUAM purchases will help your fellow sonographers.
