When your healthcare provider recommends that you have an ultrasound exam (also called a sonogram), you want to be sure that you're getting the best of care. Unfortunately, there is little regulation over who can perform or interpret a sonogram. Ultrasound practice accreditation fills that void.
Discover the importance the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) plays in regulating prenatal ultrasounds. This organization is a multidisciplinary association dedicated to advancing the safe and effective use of ultrasound in medicine through professional and public education, research, development of guidelines, and accreditation.
