The American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM), in conjunction with AMSSM, AAPMR, APMA, and MUS AIUM official statement on training guidelines for diagnostic MSK US, Training Guidelines for Physicians and Chiropractors Who Evaluate and Interpret Diagnostic Musculoskeletal Ultrasound Examinations, as well as the AIUM Official Statement on training guidelines for interventional MSK US Training Guidelines for Physicians and Chiropractors Who Perform Ultrasound-Guided Musculoskeletal Interventional Procedures.

You can download the PDF files for each by either clicking on the links above or by going to www.aium.org and going to the Guidelines and Statements section. 

Careful adherence to these guidelines, particularly the training guidelines will be important as insurance plans start scrutinizing the increased use of MSKUS and checking to see who is actually qualified to perform such exams.
