 AIUM Practice Guideline Developed by Collaborative Efforts

The collaborative development of the AIUM Practice Guideline for the Performance of a Focused Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility Scan has been announced by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM).

Indications for an ultrasound examination for a focused reproductive endocrinology and infertility scan include but are not limited to monitoring of ovulation induction and ovarian stimulation.

The American College of Nurse-Midwives, American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, American College of Osteopathic Obstetricians and Gynecologists, American Society for Reproductive Medicine-Society for Reproductive Endocrinology and Infertility, and Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses provided their valued time and effort to help bring this document to fruition.

Collaboration between the organizations began at the AIUM's 2010 Ultrasound Practice Forum: Point-of-Care Use of Ultrasound. Joshua Copel, MD, who chaired the collaborative group, stated, "The AIUM has a long history of collaboration with sister medical organizations in developing practice guidelines. The AIUM's philosophy is that the specialty of the physician doing an ultrasound examination should not matter—they should be done consistently and well by all practitioners. This guideline is another step in that direction." He further added, "I am grateful to the volunteers from each of the collaborating organizations for the hard work they put into writing this guideline and to the leadership of those organizations for their support of the process."
