The Australasian Sonographers Association (ASA)

The Australasian Sonographers Association (ASA) is the peak body and leading voice for sonographers in Australasia and leads the profession in delivering excellence in sonography to the community.

The need for an association that exclusively represents sonographers remains high and the ASA have been representing and advocating for sonographers for over 26 years. With over 6,000 members, the ASA represents more than 70% of accredited sonographers across Australia and New Zealand.

Advocating for the role of sonographers in the healthcare system and ensuring sonographers are known as the experts in ultrasound across the community are key roles for the association, as well as promoting patient access to safe and quality medical diagnostic ultrasound, best practice in medical sonography and providing sonographer education and research.

The ASA strives to advance health and advance education within the sonography field and this extends to also supporting our neighbouring less developed nations. We are proud to be the project sponsors for Radiology Across Borders’ (RAB) VITAL project, which supports sonographers in providing vital hands-on ultrasound education for our neighbours, with the aim of training them so that they can provide the much needed ultrasound services to improve health outcomes.
