AACE/AIUM join forces to enhance quality and safety in thyroid/parathyroid ultrasound procedures

The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) and the American Association of Clinical Endocrinologists (AACE) announced today a joint agreement for enhancing training, safety, and policies and procedures in ultrasound examinations. In the joint announcement, Dr. Lennard Greenbaum, President of AIUM, said that its Clinical Standards Committee had completed an extensive review of the AACE course requirements for thyroid/parathyroid ultrasound certification and recertification, and determined that those endocrinologists successfully completing the AACE course will be recognized by AIUM as having demonstrated satisfactory training in thyroid/parathyroid ultrasound examinations.

Dr. Petak said, "Achieving recognition by AIUM for meeting these high educational standards in ultrasound is a tremendous accomplishment, and a clear demonstration of AACE's commitment to helping endocrinologists provide the highest quality care in the diagnosis and treatment of their patients with thyroid disorders."
