Statement on Women’s Access to Quality Care

Inteleos and its family of certification Councils, the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS), the Alliance for Physician Certification & Advancement (APCA) and the Point-of-Care Ultrasound Certification Academy, believe all women deserve access to quality health care from certified ultrasound professionals.

As a certification organization, we assert that medical professionals who perform ultrasound should be able to demonstrate their knowledge, skills and abilities through standardized, rigorous assessments. Certification from an independent, third-party organization should be required to ensure best practices in quality patient care. This expectation of quality care should extend to all people in all health care settings.

We encourage patients to advocate for quality care by confirming that the ultrasound professional who will perform their sonogram is appropriately certified for their health and safety.
