Each year, Cassling is honored to connect diagnostic imaging teams with free resources to celebrate their sonographers during Medical Ultrasound Awareness Month.
We’ve been doing this for a number of years, and every year we pick a new theme, artwork and slogan. In years past, we’ve featured everything from a take on Rosie the Riveter being “Sonography Strong” to spinning some records with Good Vibrations, and many more.
One piece of feedback we consistently receive is that hospital and health system leaders want even more opportunities to recognize the important work of their teams. This year, we’re excited to announce that we’re able to just do that, by unveiling a new store where you can order a variety of items featuring this year’s theme!
Plus: a continuing education webinar with free CE credits recognized by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography, and more resources than ever to help you recognize the team behind the transducer.

Brave the Wave
This year, we’re helping you Brave the Wave to educate patients and other healthcare providers about the importance of sonography.
Healthcare providers in the states covered by Cassling will once again be able to order FREE posters and stickers that feature the Brave the Wave beach theme. We’re also keeping the fun going with a variety of digital resources:
Try your hand at a word search, pass out some coloring sheets to your team, or have fun with our new Sonoscapes game, which tasks you with solving a series of riddles to uncover a secret phrase!
Plus, we’re letting you make things even more personal (in a good way!) by providing materials that help you highlight the work of your sonography team, enabling them to share their unique stories with the rest of your organization.

Education to Support Sonography Best Practices
Our Investing In You continuing education program gives free CE credits to imaging professionals throughout the year, and we always try to do something special for Medical Ultrasound Awareness Month.
This year is no different, and we have a topic that will help sonographers remain on the cutting-edge of their profession.
“Hemodynamics: Unlocking the Meaning of Spectral Doppler Waveforms” promises to demystify arterial and venous Doppler waveforms, and it’s doing so by helping you build a hemodynamic framework based on foundational information in physiology. The webinar, hosted by Miriam Teft, MBA, RDMS, RVT, from Grand Valley State University, will draw from the language outlined in the Society for Vascular Medicine’s and Society for Vascular Ultrasound’s 2020 consensus statement.
This webinar will take place on Thursday, October 19, and Friday, October 20, at two different times to allow as many people as possible to attend at their convenience. We hope you’ll gather your sonography team and make an event out of it (and if you do, everyone in your crew who attends will get their 1.0 CE credit; fill out the form at the links below and follow the steps to learn how).
