AIUM to honor ultrasound pioneers at its 2004 Annual Convention

PHOENIX, AZ - The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) will present awards to several individuals who have significantly contributed to the field of medical diagnostic ultrasound at the 2004 AIUM Annual Convention in Phoenix, Arizona, on June 20, 2004.

The 2004 William J. Fry Memorial Lecture Award recipient will be Peter H. Arger, MD, who will present the memorial lecture "Ultrasound Research: Basic to Clinical--The Entry to Future Applications." William J. Fry, MD, was a physicist with a strong interest in ultrasound in biology and medicine, whose innovative research efforts advanced the field of diagnostic sonography. In 1969, the William J. Fry Memorial Lecture Award, which recognizes an individual who has significantly contributed, in his or her particular field, to the scientific progress of medical diagnostic ultrasound, was established in his honor.

The 2004 Joseph H. Holmes Pioneer Award will go to Roy A. Filly, MD, in the category of clinical science, and to Kenneth R. Erikson, in basic science. The award was established in 1977 to honor individuals who have contributed to the growth and development of diagnostic ultrasound. Joseph H. Holmes, MD, was an important figure to both the field of diagnostic ultrasound and the AIUM.

The 2004 Distinguished Sonographer Award will be presented to Paula Woletz, RDMS, RDCS, MPH. Established in 1997, the Distinguished Sonographer Award is a means of honoring an AIUM member sonographer whose outstanding contributions to the development of diagnostic ultrasound warrant special merit.

The 2004 Honorary Fellow Award will be presented to Kypros Nicolaides, MD. The Honorary Fellow Award recognizes nonmembers who have contributed significantly to the field of ultrasound. Dr Nicolaides will receive a complimentary lifetime membership to the AIUM.

Photographs and biographies are available for each winner.
