AIUM releases second edition of 'Medical Ultrasound Safety'
Date:5/15/2009

LAUREL, MDThe American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine is pleased to announce the release of Medical Ultrasound Safety, Second Edition. All operators of ultrasound systems with an output display should review the information in this publication. The book consists of 3 parts: Bioeffects and Biophysics, Prudent Use, and Implementing ALARA (as low as reasonably achievable). With the information from this 64 page publication, users can better control the diagnostic ultrasound equipment and examination to ensure that needed diagnostic information is obtained with minimal risk to the patient.

A new feature of this edition is the inclusion of a CME self-study test at the end of each section.
