Most recent status update:As of May 20, 2015: The task group report is being developed in two sections: Main Report (chair: Vosburgh), and Special Report highlighting ultrasound probe calibration (chair: Boctor). Most task group members have committed to provide initial text for the primary sections of the report. Some have been received; the others, which were due at the beginning of this month, are trickling in. Our working goal is to have a reviewable draft of the final report completed by the Anaheim Annual Meeting. --KG Vosburgh - [5/20/2015 by Kirby Vosburgh] Click to update.
