AIUM and AUA Guideline Development Leads To Practice Accreditation For Urologic Ultrasound
Date:6/22/2012

LAUREL, Md., June 22, 2012 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) and American Urological Association (AUA) are proud to announce the collaborative development of practice and training guidelines in the practice of urologic ultrasound which has led to the availability of practice accreditation through the AIUM. 

The Practice Guideline for the Performance of an Ultrasound Examination in the Practice of Urology  has been developed to assist practitioners performing an ultrasound examination in the practice of urology and provides direction in the areas of kidney, bladder, prostate, scrotal and penile ultrasound. The guideline also addresses key issues relating to documentation, quality control and improvement, safety, infection control and patient education.  Another key resource is the recently developed Training Guidelines for the Performance of Ultrasound Examinations in the Practice of Urology. These guidelines both served as a roadmap for the development of practice accreditation for urologic ultrasound through the AIUM.   

AIUM Ultrasound Practice Accreditation is a voluntary peer-review process that measures practices against nationally accepted protocols in training, practice, and safety. Practices that achieve accreditation show that they meet or exceed these standards. It is anticipated that practices accredited in urologic ultrasound will be more likely to receive payment for related ultrasound procedures. Applications for urologic ultrasound practice accreditation are accepted online at www.aium.org.

About the AIUM: The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine is a multidisciplinary medical association of more than 9000 physicians, sonographers, and scientists dedicated to advancing the safe and effective use of ultrasound in medicine through professional and public education, research, development of guidelines, and accreditation.
