Join our Physics and Safety Group

29th Sep 2022

BMUS members are invited to apply for membership of the Physics & Safety group.

BMUS formed this group in 1998 to help promote the safe use of Medical Ultrasound.  The aim of the group is to develop ultrasound safety guidelines and advise its members on developments in the physics and technology of ultrasound.  The group has regularly published guidance on ultrasound, in particular its guidance on ultrasound safety is internationally recognised. The membership of the committee consists of a mix of scientists, sonographers and medical practitioners.  The group holds three meetings a year and works closely with the BMUS Science and Education committee to ensure that all BMUS publications on physics and safety are of a quality expected by the membership.  Group members also work closely with other international ultrasound safety groups including the European Federation on the Safety of Ultrasound in Medicine and the International Society of Ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology.

This is a really exciting time to join our team!  There have been recent advancements in ultrasound scanner technologies, methods of imaging, the proliferation of ultrasound into many clinical specialities and the introduction of therapeutic ultrasound into the clinic.  We are looking to expand our membership and as such we are looking to appoint two or three new members.  We are looking  for enthusiastic scientists, sonographers and clinicians working in any speciality using ultrasound, who have an interest in ultrasound physics and patient safety.  The group’s members are expected to attend three meeting a year, two of which will be virtual.
