AIUM announces management agreement with the International Society of Therapeutic Ultrasound
Date:6/30/2009

The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) has reached a management agreement with the International Society for Therapeutic Ultrasound (ISTU) effective July 1, 2009. The AIUM will support the ISTU's administrative, financial, and member service functions in an effort to maximize the ISTU's mission of advancing therapeutic ultrasound applications worldwide.

"The AIUM recognizes therapeutic ultrasound as a rapidly expanding area of medical ultrasound," says AIUM President Harvey Nisenbaum, MD. "With a diverse membership in the medical ultrasound community, the AIUM is positioned to promote education and research in therapeutic ultrasound by cultivating the exchange of information among basic scientists, sonographers, and physicians."

In April 2009, the AIUM established the Therapeutic Ultrasound Community of Practice, a membership subgroup dedicated to promoting therapeutic ultrasound by assisting in the development of educational programs and providing an opportunity for networking and collaboration.

"I think that collaboration between the ISTU and the AIUM can greatly expand awareness of therapeutic ultrasound applications and facilitate growth of our organization," says ISTU President Kullervo Hynynen, PhD.

The AIUM has managed several nonprofit medical associations and currently has a management arrangement with the World Federation for Ultrasound in Medicine and Biology.

The potential benefits of therapeutic ultrasound are recognized for targeted drug delivery, pathogenic tissue destruction, physical therapy, and several other applications.
