Together, we can save lives. Real world learning for real life health.

The History & Vision

The groundwork for this charitable body was laid in 1975 when the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS) was established.

Fast forward to today and the ARDMS roots have flourished into the Inteleos family of internationally recognized and respected non-profit organizations with more than 120,000 affiliated medical professionals representing 70 countries.

We can improve global health by making education, training, and certification consistent for medical practitioners.

Increased proficiency in medical imaging leads to better diagnostic capabilities, greater equity in healthcare, and empowerment of patients and providers.

Currently, only 17% of mothers received basic maternal and fetal health interventions in low-income countries. If we achieve our goals, by 2030 every medical ultrasound practitioner in the world will be certified as proficient in the use of use medical imaging technology, improving patient outcomes and increasing healthcare equity.
