ACEP and SAEM are now united in their support of the revision of ultrasound guidelines published by ACEP in 2008.Â See Dr. Moak’s comments below:
I am pleased to announce that the SAEM Board of Directors has endorsed the 2008 ACEP Ultrasound Guidelines. Â The vote was unanimous. Â 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. Â I’d like to highlight the hard work of Dr. Vivek Tayal, the primary editor of the guidelines, and the many others who contributed. Â We are also grateful to Dr. Jeff Kline for his advocacy for this initiative among the membership of the SAEM BOD.
Chair, SAEM Ultrasound Interest Group
