Founded in 1951, AIUM works to coordinate the efforts of researchers, clinicians, and engineers by providing a forum for interaction among these groups. The Institute is supported through yearly dues from its over 8,000 members. AIUM dues provide educational materials on the various applications of ultrasound in medicine, including uses for diagnosis, and biological research.
