Welcome To The Alaska State Ultrasound Society
In an effort to encompass and serve ALL of ALASKA’s Sonographers/ Sonologists and individuals closely associated with the use of diagnostic medical ultrasound, the Alaska State Ultrasound Society was formed in 2018. The Society seeks to represent all sub-specialties of ultrasound, including General, Cardiac, Vascular, OB/Gyn, Musculoskeletal and Veterinary.
Although AKSUS is not an affiliate chapter of SDMS, this Alaska society has been inspired by and formed from that model. In compliance with the guidelines set forth by that national organization, the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS), the purpose of the Alaska State Ultrasound Society, AKSUS, is to promote, advance and educate its members and the medical community in the science of diagnostic medical sonography. Our society, which is nonprofit, nonpolitical and nonsectarian holds the core purpose of enhancing the art and science of medicine by promoting the ultrasound profession through education. We continually strive to raise the standard of ultrasound practice within the state of Alaska through our educational activities.
Next AKSUS Meeting TBA
Maybe a Live Meeting!
