Ultrasound Awareness Month

Ultrasound Awareness Month is held annually in October to create awareness of the role the diagnostic medical sonographers play in the medical community and to educate the public about ultrasound and its many uses in healthcare.

The Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonographer’s (SDMS) theme for this year is “Image is Everything: We Know What You’re Made Of”.

ARDMS offers resources for Registrants to educate, celebrate and promote your profession during Medical Ultrasound Awareness Month! Here are a few ways you can educate the public:

  • Tell your patients you are certified
  • Educate patients about the different terms of Sonography
  • Celebrate your accomplishments on social media
  • Encourage your colleagues to get certified
  • Be a Mentor​
