Recognizing the importance of increasing public awareness of medical ultrasound and promoting its value in health care, UltrasoundSchoolsInfo.com is celebrating Medical Ultrasound Awareness Month in October by providing articles designed to raise medical ultrasound awareness. In addition, we invite you to share your story about how ultrasound has affected your life, or why you chose sonography as a career. For every person that contributes a comment below, we will make a $10.00 donation to the Focused Ultrasound Foundation.
With ultrasound’s increasing role in medicine, one of the main goals of the campaign is to provide the public with a better understanding of what ultrasound is, its many uses in health care, and to guide them toward locating and utilizing the best ultrasound practitioners and resources available. We chose the Focused Ultrasound Foundation as the recipient of our donation for the work they do in “support(ing) education and research related to MR-guided focused ultrasound surgery” (fusfoundation.org), and we invite you to learn more about their important research by visiting their website at fusfoundation.org.
Through the following specially written articles, UltrasoundSchoolsInfo.com hopes to familiarize and educate the public about medical ultrasound.
