ASUM 2014 ASM Wrap Up

The ASUM 2014 ASM was another successful meeting by the Australasian Society for Ultrasound in Medicine, with an extensive list of both Australian and international delegates descending on Crown Promenade in Melbourne. AshMed’s stand was a popular spot for professionals looking to discuss all the OB/GYNs coming past to ask about the new Bridea Orchid Speculum range.

The number one discussion point we had was the constant and unavoidable breakdowns by automated, benchtop reprocessors used for intracavity ultrasound. These breakdowns resulted in disruption of patient scanning, waits for loan equipment and often costly repairs. The Bridea Orchid Spec had a strong level of interest at the conference, with many people impressed by their points of difference. The variety of sizes available, award winning design and unique features meant they stood out even at a conference targeting ultrasound professionals.

As the sponsor of the Excellence Award for Australasian Sonographer of the Year, AshMed would like to congratulate the winner Debra Paoletti from the Fetal Medicine Department at Canberra Hospital. Deb has an outstanding professional record and many achievements under her belt, and is a deserving winner of this prestigious recognition in a very talented peer group.
