The Three Secrets to an 
Unstoppable Memory
Ron White
This year, the SDMS 
Annual Conference will 
feature Ron White as the 
keynote speaker. Ron 
White is without question the nation’s #1 
Memory Expert and is one of the top in the 
world. He is a two time national memory 
champion winning the USA Memory 
Championship in 2009 and 2010. He holds 
the record for the fastest time to memorize a 
deck of shuffled cards in only 1 minute and 27 
seconds and has memorized the names of 200 
people in 15 minutes even more times than he 
can remember. Audiences have long marveled 
at his ability to memorize a 60 digit number 
in less than 90 seconds or memorize a deck of 
shuffled cards in a flash. Every audience Ron 
shares his talk with leaves laughing, amazed 
and empowered that they can do the same 
thing! Ron’s desire is not that you see him as 
the person with the best trained memory but 
that he teaches YOU to have the best trained 
memory! In every talk Ron shares that he is no 
different from anyone and everyone can learn 
how to improve their memory.

The Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography 
Political Action Committee (SDMS PAC) 
was established to assist in SDMS’ efforts to 
promote issues related to Diagnostic Medical 
Sonography at the Federal level.
The SDMS PAC is an essential component in 
the Society’s efforts to represent the interests 
of the membership. It enables the association 
to send a strong, collective, bipartisan message 
to members of Congress that the sonographer 
members of SDMS are committed to support 
those candidates in Congress that are engaged 
and supportive of our efforts to further the 
interests and policy positions of the SDMS.
How can I help?
For more information, visit the SDMS PAC 
booth in the Exhibit Hall (in the SDMS 
Pavilion). You can also visit us online at

This year we will hold the first annual SDMS 
Registry Review course. The session will be held on 
Thursday, September 22. The course will be broken 
into five 90 minute sessions focusing on Physics 
and Instrumentation, Doppler and Hemodynamics, 
Basic Abdominal Sonography, Obstetric Sonography 
followed by and a question and answer session. 
The course will provide a broad overview of the 
topics to help individuals who are in the process 
of preparing for the registry exams. Topics selected 
for presentation are aligned with major outline 
topics in the SDMS series of National Certification 
Examination Review(NCER) books. While the 
attendees are not required to purchase the NCER 
books, they will be useful during the Review and as 
valuable take-away resources. For optimal learning 
from this course, it is expected the attendee will have 
a foundation in normal anatomy and physiology,

Leif Penrose, RDMS, RDCS, RVT
Have you considered how it is that we look at an image 
and arrive at a decision concerning the truths which it 
holds and represents? This lecture will explore the basis 
for how we sort through patterns in the world around 
us to determine what is and what is not. This interac-tive and image rich course will use an audience partici-pation system to help us consider how we consider the 
patterns within our visual world and our profession.

Math & Everyday Life: The Mathematical 
Perspective that Everyone Should Know TH-08
Frank Miele, MSEE
The academic lives of students are made more 
challenging by a limited knowledge of mathematical 
relationships, showing how mathematical logic 
and reasoning affects not only their ability to write 
a well structured argument, and inter-personal 
relationships. Some core mathematical principles 
are taught including mathematical relationships 
and basic logic and reasoning. Ultimately, the 
students will develop not just a better appreciation 
for mathematics in its role in learning sonography, 
but also the value of a mathematical approach to 
performing patient studies, writing a term paper, and 
reducing arguments with friends.
12:45 – 2:15 PM 
Interesting Cases: Scanning with the Stars TH-15
Marianna Desmond, MEd, RT(R), RDMS,

Test-Taking Strategies: Eliminating the Voices in 
Your Head TH-22
Frank Miele, MSEE
This session has been designed to teach and review 
the logic and reasoning necessary to pass an exam. 
Specific techniques are taught on how to analyze a 
problem, analyze distracters, deal with time pressure, 
and cope with the logistics of a computer-based 
exam. These techniques are then applied on various 
exam questions as time permits.
4:15 – 5:45 PM
Your Role Moving Forward TH-29
Salvatore LaRusso, MEd, RT(R), RDMS, 
Rebecca Mathiasen, BS, RT(R), RDMS, 
Catherine Rienzo, MS, RT(R), RDMS,
Tricia Turner, BS, RDMS, RVT
The purpose of this lecture is to explain the role 
of students as they move forward, transitioning 
from student to intern to professional. With so 
much input from a multitude of mentors, advice is 
commonly difficult to sort and prioritize. Although 
all valuable, advice received can be misinterpreted 
or confusing. A discussion of the expectations of 
teachers, clinical supervisors and potential employers 
will be presented. For the last 15 minutes of 
allotted time there will be a panel comprised of four 
individuals who currently interact with students 
in different settings (teacher/clinical supervisor/
employer). The panel members will answer questions 
from the audience regarding their expectations of the 
students.

Got Integrity? How to Combat Academic 
Dishonesty TH-02
Rebecca Mathiasen, BS, RT(R), RDMS
Student academic misconduct continues to be 
a growing problem for colleges and universities, 
including those responsible for preparing health 
professionals. The ramifications of cheating include 
not only harm to the student, but in health 
professions education, breakdowns in academic 
integrity may result in poor quality or improper 
patient care because the dishonest student does not 
acquire the knowledge base or clinical experience 
necessary to deliver high-quality care. Would you 
like to help keep your students’ academic integrity 
in tact? What are some strategies that we can use to 
decrease the prevalence of cheating?
9:45 – 11:15 AM
Develop and Analyze Your Tests TH-09
Ellen Julian, PhD
This session will extract useful tips for educators 
designing their own examinations from Dr. 
Julian’s 30 years of experience with analyzing the 
performance of multiple-choice questions (MCQs) 
for physicians, nurses, sonographers and premeds. 
The basics of test design will be covered briefly, with 
most of the time divided between how to build good 
MCQs and how to analyze their performance. Simple 
analytic techniques that can be used with classroom 
tests will be shared and explained.
12:45 – 2:15 PM 
Making Bioeffects Meaningful for Students TH-16 
Phillip Bendick, PhD, RVT, FSDMS
The potential for bioeffects related to diagnostic 
sonography is an important consideration when 
selecting machine settings. However, teaching 
the underlying physical principles and concepts 
to students can be challenging. This lecture will 
relate those principles to practical aspects of the 
clinical sonographic examination and offer ways to 
explain them in a fashion meaningful to the typical 
sonography student. Starting from the ALARA 
principle, the “alphabet soup” of S, P, T and A will 
be put into easily understood terms and the origin, 
rationale and explanation of both the thermal and 
mechanical indices clarified.
2:30 – 4:00 PM
Problem-Based Learning TH-23 
Leif Penrose, RDMS, RDCS, RVT
The standard teaching method of lecturing does 
not engage the students in adult learning behaviors. 
Problem-based learning (PBL) takes the instructor 
out of the role of provider of all knowledge. The 
instructor becomes a tutor who guides the group 
through a series of self-directed learning experiences. 
If done well, student satisfaction increases 
significantly, creativity flourishes and learning occurs 
at a deeper level. 
4:15 – 5:45 PM
Integrating Technology into the Classroom TH-30
Marianna Desmond, MEd, RT(R), RDMS
Technology can be described as the tools we use 
to support and embrace learning/life. In order 
to be effective in learning we must also combine 
our knowledge and skills with these tools in 
order to make them functional and purposeful. 
This presentation will take a look at a variety 
of technology tools available today that can be 
incorporated into any learning environment as a way 
to enhance teaching and learning.
Abdominal Sonography Tutorial
Centennial I
8:00 – 9:30 AM
Sonography of the Appendix and Abdominal Wall 
Hernias TH-03 
Cynthia Rapp, BS, RDMS, RDCS, FSDMS, FAIUM
Sonography plays a vital role in non-invasive 
evaluation of patients with RLQ pain. Sonography 
can differentiate appendicitis and hernias from other 
etiologies of pelvic pain. Successful demonstration 
of a normal sized appendix virtually excludes 
appendicitis in the patient with RLQ pain. The first 
portion of this presentation will cover how to find the 
normal appendix with sonography. Abdominal wall 
hernias are a common clinical problem. Sonography 
is an accurate means of identifying abdominal wall 
hernias when the clinical diagnosis is uncertain. We 
will also discuss how to identify inguinal, femoral, 
and spigelian hernias.
9:45 – 11:15 AM
Abdominal Doppler TH-10 
Marsha Neumyer, BS, RVT, FSDMS, FSVU, FAIUM
Duplex sonography has become a valued tool in 
the evaluation of patients with abdominal vascular 
disorders. Increasing numbers of vascular laboratories 
perform sonographic evaluations of the aorta, 
mesenteric and renal arteries and the hepatoportal 
system. Abdominal Doppler evaluations are accurate 
and cost-effective for identification and classification 
of vascular disease when performed by experienced 
sonographers and physicians who provide a high 
volume of these studies. The examinations are 
technically challenging and demand knowledge of 
normal blood flow patterns associated with the various 
organ systems, visceral vascular pathophysiology, and 
the basic principles of duplex sonography. During this 
discussion and live demonstration, we will explore the 
fundamentals of abdominal Doppler and learn some 
“tricks of the trade” for ensuring accurate, complete 
visceral vascular examinations.

Image Fusion and Needle Guidance in 
Sonography TH-31 
Cindy Owen, RT, RDMS, RVT, FSDMS
Fusion technology is one of the latest advances in 
sonography, allowing the sonographer to import CT 
and MRI images directly into the ultrasound unit. 
By “fusing” the two technologies the sonographer 
can see the corresponding CT or MRI image as they 
perform their sonographic examination, giving side-by-side comparison between the two modalities. This 
talk will discuss the benefits of this new technology 
and how it can benefit your lab and patients.

Antenatal detection of a fetal central nervous system 
(CNS) anomaly has important implications for 
patient counseling and management. A wide range 
of CNS lesions are detected at both during routine so-nographic examinations, as well as in patients referred 
for an elevated maternal serum alpha-fetoprotein 
level. This presentation reviews sonographic features 
of CNS anomalies commonly detected at antenatal 
sonography, emphasizing distinguishing features and 
potential diagnostic pitfalls.
Vascular Sonography Tutorial
Centennial IV
8:00 – 9:30 AM
Fundamentals of Upper and Lower Extremity 
Venous Scanning TH-06
Marsha Neumyer, BS, RVT, FSDMS, FSVU, FAIUM
Venous duplex scanning examinations may be 
performed to rule out acute deep venous thrombosis, 
for pre-procedure mapping, or to identify venous 
reflux, the study may reveal evidence of chronic, 
post-phlebitic changes in the vein wall or circulatory 
patterns. Additionally, the sonographer may 
encounter venous stenosis, aneurysms, arterio-venous 
fistulae, or venous catheters, stents, and shunts. As 
such, extremity venous duplex evaluations may 
be technically challenging, particularly in patients 
who have had previous episodes for deep vein 
thrombosis and who present with well-developed 
collateral systems. Join us for a discussion and live 
demonstration as we explore the upper and lower 
extremity deep and superficial veins.

Bioeffects FR-38
Phillip Bendick, PhD, RVT, FSDMS
“The diagnostic medical sonographer strives to 
minimize patient exposure to acoustic energy 
without compromising examination quality or 
completeness.” Are the concerns about sonography 
related bioeffects real? Are our clinical ultrasound 
instruments capable of producing bioeffects? 
Starting from the ALARA principle, we will explore 
the world of bioeffects so that even though the 
answers to the questions above are Yes and Yes, 
we will be able to continue to scan our patients 
safely. The underlying physical principles of 
bioeffects will be explained in easily understood 
terms and the alphabetic maze of S, P, T and A 
demystified. Likewise the origin, rationale and 
explanation of thermal and mechanical indices will 
be covered. The practice implications of the most 
recent recommendations of the AIUM Bioeffects 
Committee will be discussed. An understanding of 
bioeffects and how to minimize their potential is 
essential to maintaining that record.

Early Markers of Cardiovascular Disease and 
Screening FR-42
Phillip Bendick, PhD, RVT, FSDMS
Heart attack and stroke remains the number one 
and number three causes of death in the United 
States. This presentation will focus on sonographic 
techniques to measure markers of cardiovascular 
disease to help establish the overall risk a patient 
might have for a heart attack or stroke. The 
primary markers to be discussed will be the ankle-brachial index (ABI), a marker of existing systemic 
atherosclerotic disease; brachial artery reactivity or 
flow mediated dilation (FMD), a marker of existing 
endothelial cell dysfunction; and the intima-medial thickness (IMT), a measure of precursors to 
atherosclerotic disease. How vascular screening can 
be utilized to evaluate each of these markers and 
the relative role of these markers in determining 
cardiovascular risk stratification and future 
prognosis will be discussed as well.

The Art and Science of Vascular Sonography FR-50
Phillip Bendick, PhD, RVT, FSDMS
Sonography remains as the only medical imaging 
profession and specialty where the operator has 
ultimate control of the overall quality and clarity 
of a diagnostic study. While a great deal of science 
has gone into the design of the ultrasound machine, 
the sonographer is the artist who makes it all come 
together for diagnosis. The machine keyboard 
becomes the artist’s palette, the ultrasound gel the 
medium for information exchange between machine 
and patient, and the monitor the canvas on which 
to display the resulting artwork. This lecture will 
discuss the interactions needed between the science 
of sonography and the “artistic” talents of the 
sonographer to produce the best quality diagnostic 
studies, with a primary focus on the requirements of 
vascular sonography for imaging and quantification.

African philosophy can teach us about teamwork.
Sunday Course Descriptions
Cardiac
Myocardial Disease: Intelligent Echo SU-92
Priscilla Peters, BA, RDCS, FASE
The primary myocardial diseases include dilated, hyper-trophic, and restrictive cardiomyopathies. This presen-tation will discuss the role echocardiography plays in 
confirming the diagnosis and type of cardiomyopathy, and 
in the evaluation of both systolic and diastolic function.
Ob/Gyn
Sonographic Evaluation of Non-Gynecologic 
Causes of Pelvic Pain SU-93
Leslie Scoutt, MD
Think outside the box. The clinical presentation of non-gynecologic pelvic pathology overlaps with common 
gynecologic problems. Appendicitis, renal colic, urethral 
diverticulum, cystitis and pelvic congestion syndrome 
can all cause pelvic pain. Conversely, the clinical presen-tation of gynecologic pathology can mimic GI or GU 
conditions. This lecture will review the role of pelvic 
sonography in the diagnosis of appendicitis, diverticu-litis, bowel obstruction, renal colic, urethral diverticula 
and pelvic congestion syndrome.
Vascular
What’s Up with Stents? SU-94
Gail Hadley, RN, RVT, FSVU
This course will provide a comprehensive overview of the 
utility of duplex sonography for evaluation of vascular 
stenting devices used for the treatment of vascular disease. 
Exam protocols, diagnostic criteria, and potential pitfalls 
scanning stents in the carotid arteries, peripheral arteries 
and mesenteric arteries will be presented.
Thank you
