Member-in-Training Research Award
In 2006 the Executive Board established the Member-in-Training research award to recognize an SRU member, resident or fellow, for excellence in ultrasound-related research. The award is given yearly for the best original research paper submitted to the Research Committee for review. The amount of the award is $1000, and the paper is presented at the annual meeting.

Lawrence A. Mack Lifetime Achievement Award
(Larry Mack Award)
The Larry Mack Award was established to honor the memory of Dr. Larry Mack and is funded by a memorial fund that receives contributions from SRU members and others. Dr. Mack was a professor of radiology and director of ultrasound at the University of Washington. He died on June 16, 1995, following a long battle with pancreatic cancer. Larry was well known for his original contributions to ultrasound, especially in the areas of musculoskeletal and obstetrical sonography. He was an early and valued member of the SRU and it was his wish that a research award be established to remember him at the annual meeting.
From its inception until 2008, the award was presented to the SRU member who submitted the best paper on clinical ultrasound research. In 2008 the award was renamed the Lawrence A. Mack Lifetime Achievement Award and is now presented to an individual to honor outstanding lifetime achievement in ultrasound research. The award recipient is selected by the Nominating and Awards Committee, which consists of the president, president-elect and the three most recent past presidents of the society.
