What is ICUS?

The International Contrast Ultrasound Society (ICUS) is the only global medical society exclusively devoted to promoting the safe and appropriate utilization of contrast-enhanced ultrasound (CEUS) where medically indicated, in order to improve patient care worldwide.

A strong and respected voice for the CEUS field, ICUS is at the forefront of CEUS education, advocacy and communications — providing a unique grassroots focus on the best interests of patients. 

ICUS offers free CEUS educational programs, both live and via the internet, along with free access to all CEUS references on the ICUS website and CEUS updates in the Weekly News Monitors (in English and Mandarin).  In addition, ICUS is a respected CEUS resource for policy makers,  health care providers, other ultrasound professionals, the media and the public. 

Founded in 2008, ICUS has grown to more than 4,000 members in nearly 60 countries.   Our diverse membership includes physicians, sonographers, nurses, scientists and other ultrasound imaging professionals, along with administrators, patients, the media and the public. Our members also bridge the fields of cardiology, radiology, vascular imaging, gastro-intestinal imaging, oncology, OB-GYN, hepatology and others medical subspecialties.
