The International Veterinary Ultrasound Society's goals are to promote research and provide education in ultrasonography to all groups performing diagnostic ultrasound in veterinary medicine. The primary method by which the society promotes research in and provides education in veterinary ultrasonography is through the organization of an annual meeting.
