ASE Needs Your Input

As 2017 draws to a close, ASE would once again like to hear from our most important stakeholders – our members and the medical community – about your practice and the latest trends in the field. Please take a few minutes of your time to help ASE gain insight about topics such as expanding uses of cardiovascular ultrasound, application of emerging technologies, and specific utilization preferences and trends.

Your responses will help ASE plan future educational and quality initiatives, and advance our mission of improving the practice of cardiovascular ultrasound for better patient outcomes. Since we know your time is valuable, we are offering a chance to win one of two $50 VISA gift cards to all who participate, so make sure to enter your name and email address at the end of the survey. Also, please feel free to forward the survey link to others or post it on any non-ASE medical forums you may belong to. The survey can be accessed here. Thank you very much for your participation!

Celebrate MUAM with ASEF! Honor A Sonographer Today!

At the ASE Foundation, October is very special because it’s Medical Ultrasound Awareness Month (MUAM)! MUAM was established to provide the public with a better understanding of ultrasound and its many uses in healthcare.

In honor of MUAM, the ASE Foundation encourages you to show the sonographers in your life how important they are to you by making a donation in their honor! Donate between today and October 31st and include the name and email of the person you are honoring. The Foundation will then send a special electronic card to that person thanking them for the role they play in your life and the lives of patients.

Give a gift that supports the ASE Foundation while honoring those who support you. Join the Foundation in celebrating Medical Ultrasound Awareness Month!
