Each October, the societies highlight awareness of the role sonographers play in the medical community and educate the public about medical ultrasound and its many uses in healthcare. MUAM is a joint effort of the following organizations:

  • American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM)
  • American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS)
  • American Society of Echocardiography (ASE)
  • Cardiovascular Credentialing International (CCI)
  • Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS)
  • Society for Vascular Ultrasound (SVU)

This year's theme is "Sonomoji: Express Yourself," replete with posters, buttons, T-shirts, pens, socks, and an app.
