The mission of NMSKUS SIG is:

  • To promote best adherence to quality measures in the practice of neuromusculoskeletal ultrasonography
  • To provide platform for the development of educational guideline and clinical research in NMSKUS
  • To promote higher standards of practice and continued growth through members involvement in NMSKUS SIG

Ultrasound imaging is a rapidly growing field across specialties and is known to be superior to other imaging techniques in terms of cost effectiveness, higher patient satisfaction and overall efficiency in patient care. There is a special area within diagnostic ultrasound imaging for neuromusculoskeletal imaging and relatively new but rapidly growing integumentary system imaging Ultrasound can be used as an adjunct to physical examination, electrodiagnostic procedures or as a diagnostic tool by itself.

How to become a member?

To become member of the NMSKUS SIG, one has to be member of the Academy of Clinical Electrophysiology and Wound Management (ACEWM) There is no additional cost to you to become a member of the NMSKUS SIG


  • Educational webinars, updated policy documents and discussions on ultrasound imaging topics as they relate to EDX, neurology, orthopedics and the integumentary system are of great value to many clinicians and educators.
  • Collaborate and network with colleagues who share similar interests.
  • Contribute to this growing field and shape the future of PT’s utilizing ultrasound as a diagnostic tool
