Ultrasound First will provide clinical evidence on the use of ultrasound through the Journal of Ultrasound in Medicine and the AIUM's upcoming Sound Judgment series. Invited articles will highlight the clinical value of using ultrasound first in specific clinical diagnoses where the modality has shown comparative or superior value.

Clinical conditions in the series will include postmenopausal bleeding, right lower quadrant pain, pelvic pain, right upper quadrant pain, and shoulder pain, among others. AIUM also will host an Ultrasound First forum in November.
