Medical Ultrasound Awareness Month

30th Sep 2020

October is Medical Ultrasound Awareness Month (MUAM). MUAM is an opportunity to raise awareness and understanding with the public of ultrasound and its many uses in healthcare. It also provides ultrasound professionals a chance to celebrate their profession.

We plan to spend the month celebrating the profession and raising awareness of Ultrasound and all the ways we use it in modern society. Keep a look out on our social media pages and Ultrapost for what’s coming up and where you can get involved.

On Thursday 1st October we will be launching our first awareness raising challenge! How many pathologies can you say in 30 seconds that can be diagnosed on ultrasound. Post your video to social media with the #MUAM and tag our social media pages. Those with the most will win some BMUS and MUAM goodies!
