SVU Fellows

The Society for Vascular Ultrasound (SVU) created the designation of a Fellow to honor outstanding leaders in the industry. Fellows are recognized by SVU for their many outstanding contributions to the Society as well as to the vascular ultrasound profession. They are considered a unique resource for the Society in terms of promoting the benefits of SVU membership and in supporting the many educational, advocacy and career advancement efforts of the Society.

New Fellows are announced at the SVU's Annual Conference each year. Each Fellow is ceremoniously presented with a lapel pin and a SVU Fellows Certificate signifying they are a Fellow of the Society for Vascular Ultrasound (FSVU).
