A healthier world through sonographer expertise


 The ASA advocates, on behalf of sonographers, to governments and sector stakeholders to ensure patients have access to safe and high-quality medical diagnostic ultrasound and with a particular focus on improving professional standards and enhancing the sonographer workforce.

The ASA also works for the sonography profession to provide extensive professional development opportunities, develop evidence-based resources and recommendations for sonography practice. This is complemented by the ASA’s investment in and dissemination of research that contributes to the sonography profession’s body of knowledge.


In order to practice as Accredited Medical Sonographers, sonographers must complete a recognised postgraduate qualification, complete clinical training of up to three days per week over two years and undertake ongoing professional development.

Sonographers must also be accredited by the Australian Sonographer Accreditation Registry (ASAR) in order to perform medical ultrasound examinations eligible for Medicare rebates to meet the Australian Government’s Diagnostic Imaging Accreditation Scheme standards and Medicare legislation.
