In case you missed the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine webinar featuring Acertara’s Jim Gessert and Nick Ellens, check out the YouTube below from the AIUM channel.

“In this video, James Gessert, BSc Physics, BSEE and Nicholas Ellens, PhD, discuss the measurement process and issues associated with determining the acoustic parameters (MI/TI) displayed on diagnostic ultrasonic systems that follow the “Output Display Standard;” address important issues that may be encountered during the measurement process; explain key equipment requirements associated with the measurement process; and discuss the measurement reporting differences between the US FDA and an IEC notified body requirements.”


The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM) is the association for medical ultrasound. Members are physicians, sonographers, scientists, and other professionals stretching across all specialties creating a unique community for collaboration and advancement in ultrasound. The AIUM’s emphasis is on making available to members the most up-to-date and accurate information and skill training so they can make the best use of this imaging modality while ensuring the safety of the patients who depend on them.
