One CME credit will be awarded for successful completion of each test with a grade of 70% or higher (ie, at least 7 correct answers). Participants will be able to download a form certifying receipt of credits earned. Credit for each test is available for 3 years from the first of the month in which the test is published.

Activity Description
The JUM is dedicated to the rapid, accurate publication of original articles dealing with all aspects of diagnostic ultrasound, particularly its direct application to patient care, but also relevant basic science, advances in instrumentation, and biologic effects. Original research, technical innovations, pictorial essays, review articles, clinical letters, commentaries, case series, and letters to the editor are published.

Accreditation Statement
The AIUM is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide CME activities for physicians.

Designation Statement
The AIUM designates this journal-based CME activity for a maximum of 1 AMA PRA Category 1 CME Credit™. Physicians should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity.
