July 21, 2004

The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) will host Sonography: A Broad Sweep, led by course director Marie De Lange, BS, RDMS, RDCS, RT September 3-5, 2004, at the Palace Station Hotel, Las Vegas, Nevada. Take advantage of early registration (prior to July 12, 2004) and SAVE.

Through lecture, discussion, case presentation, and demonstrations, this course will provide a broad and complex overview of practical approaches to multiple areas of diagnostic sonography. It will include information on obstetric, gynecologic, breast, and vascular ultrasound studies, and the ever-present problem of repetitive motion musculoskeletal injuries in sonographers, sonologists, and radiologists who participate in scanning will also be discussed.

Register online at and benefit from a broad range of discussion topics, gaining new insight into the practice of sonography. Hear nationally recognized experts discuss their techniques and approaches, tricks, and tips, while earning up to 14 category 1 AMA PRA continuing medical education (CME) credits and meeting your CME requirement for practice accreditation and/or ARDMS registry requirements. The complete faculty and course list is available online at Come network with colleagues from all over the country in a comfortable, practice-based course, in a city known for fun and entertainment!

"This course, designed especially for sonographers, includes practical, timely, and current presentations on topics that participants should find both informative and beneficial--an invaluable networking, educational opportunity for those professionals seeking to expand and update their skills and knowledge," said course director Marie De Lange, BS, RDMS, RDCS, RT.

Key topics include

  • Fetal Intervention Techniques -- Both New & Not-So-New
  • Musculoskeletal Injuries: Causes and Prevention
  • Dialysis Access Grafts: Pre-And Postoperative Assessment
  • Radial Artery Mapping: Protocols and Needs Assessment
  • Twin Assessment Must-Do's for the Sonographer or Sonologist
  • Optimization of Breast Sonography
  • Endometrial Changes and the Use of Sonohysterography
  • Color Doppler Versus Power Doppler in Carotid Examinations

    Immediately following the sonography course, don't miss the accreditation Getting Started Workshop on Sunday, September 5, from 1 pm to 4 pm. The workshop, which will provide answers to the most commonly asked questions about the accreditation process, allows attendees the opportunity to earn 3 CME credits.
    The AIUM, a multidisciplinary organization dedicated to advancing the art and science of ultrasound in medicine and research through its educational, scientific, literary, and professional activities, has been able to promote the safe and effective use of ultrasound in clinical medicine for more than 50 years.
