Spring, 2016


We had a diverse range of speakers who presented on basic and advanced topics.  NCUS board members work hard throughout the year to provide information for new and seasoned sonographers and I'm sure all who came learned something to help them in their daily scanning.  Dr. Frederick Kremkau led our physics sessions for sonographers studying for their registry exams or needing a refresher on the principles underlying ultrasound.

Past president, Chris Mann and NCUS board member, Amy Safrit moderated the Quiz Bowl Friday night with lots of fun and learning once again.  Congrats to the winners and all the teams that participated.In addition, student case study submissions were judged. I always love this night where students put themselves out there.  That's the way we learn and grow. To see pictures from the evening’s festivities and the names of the winning schools and individual students, visit our Facebook page!

In addition, Mary Alice Bradley was awarded this year’s Sonographer Excellence Award. The submission deadline for next year’s recipient is October 31, 2016 so visit www.ncus.org to make your vote count! The Fall Symposium will be held at Eastern Carolina Heart Institute Conference Center in Greenville, NC on Saturday, October 22nd and the Spring meeting will be in Asheville, NC at the beautiful Grove Park Inn March 17-19th, 2017. Mark your calendars now so you and your fellow sonographers can attend!

Remember, Image is Everything!
