SIU Maternal-Fetal Medicine Awarded AUIM Accreditation

Published Date:

The Department of Maternal-Fetal Medicine at Southern Illinois University Medicine has earned a new status: American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine Accredited. The recognition, awarded by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine, signifies that the practice has demonstrated a commitment to providing patients with the highest quality care.

AIUM ultrasound practice accreditation is a peer review process that allows our practice to prove that we meet or exceed nationally recognized standards in the performance and interpretation of diagnostic ultrasound examinations. AIUM accreditation further recognizes the excellence of our physicians, staff, and equipment. This includes:

  • Proof that physicians who ultimately interpret the ultrasounds have received specialty training

  • A program for ensuring that all ultrasound equipment is medically safe and rigorously maintained

  • Documentation that ultrasound procedures are thorough and complete

  • Evidence that ultrasound equipment used is appropriate for the types of tests being performed

Through our voluntary compliance with the standards set by the AUIM, patients can feel assured that the leading experts in ultrasound stand behind our practice, promoting lifelong competency and learning for our sonographers and doctors, and that we maintain the highest standards of quality control.
