ACEP and SAEM are now united in their support of the revision of ultrasound guidelines published by ACEP in 2008.  See Dr. Moak’s comments below:

I am pleased to announce that the SAEM Board of Directors has endorsed the 2008 ACEP Ultrasound Guidelines.  The vote was unanimous.  This endorsement represents a very strong commitment to our aims as a community of emergency sonographers, and is congruent with our mission as educators and researchers in the field.  I’d like to highlight the hard work of Dr. Vivek Tayal, the primary editor of the guidelines, and the many others who contributed.  We are also grateful to Dr. Jeff Kline for his advocacy for this initiative among the membership of the SAEM BOD.

Best regards,
James
Chair, SAEM Ultrasound Interest Group
