Welcome To The
Midwest Society of Diagnostic Ultrasound
On September 24th, 1975, the Twin Cities Ultrasound Society was born. In September of 1980, our name changed to the Minnesota Society of Diagnostic Ultrasound (MSDU) in order to encompass the entire state of Minnesota. In March of 2013, the MSDU Board members approved the changing of the Society’s name to the MIDWEST Society of Diagnostic Ultrasound. This was done in an effort to encompass ALL of our MIDWEST Sonographers/ Sonologists and correctly reflect our current membership.In compliance with the guidelines set forth by the national organization, the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography (SDMS), the purpose of our society is to promote, advance and educate its members and the medical community in the science of diagnostic medical sonography. Our society, which is nonprofit, nonpolitical and nonsectarian holds the core purpose of enhancing the art and science of medicine by promoting the ultrasound profession through education. We continually strive to raise the standard of ultrasound practice within the Midwest Region through our education activities and the distribution of the MSDU newsletter.
