Live Scanning for Educational Purposes
New for 2018!
The AIUM strives to educate, train, and advance the safe and effective use of ultrasound in medicine. The FDA discourages the “use of ultrasound scanning on live models for the purpose of device demonstration.” The AIUM supports the guideline that all live scanning of human subjects must include an educational component. To that end, we have created a Live Scanning for Educational Purposes Resource Packet to keep companies informed of the changes to policies and procedures regarding live scanning done in conjunction with AIUM activities that include an educational component. This year, the entire 2nd floor above the Exhibit Hall is devoted to featuring our exhibitor’s equipment and we've doubled the amount of hands-on learning for our attendees.You will have the opportunity during lunch to invite attendees to use your equipment, however, live-scanning will only be permitted on this floor.
