Ultrasonography, the official English-language journal of the Korean Society of Ultrasound in Medicine (KSUM), is an international peer-reviewed academic journal dedicated to practice, research, technology, and education dealing with medical ultrasound. It is renamed from the Journal of Korean Society of Ultrasound in Medicine in January 2014, and published four times per year: January 1, April 1, July 1, and October 1. Original articles, technical notes, topical reviews, perspectives, pictorial essays, and timely editorial materials are published in Ultrasonography covering state-of-the-art content.
