Point-of-Care Image and Video Contributor

​​​​​Become a POC Image and Video Contributor and share your dedication to quality ultrasound imaging while playing a vital role on the ARDMS Innovative team. 

ARDMS is developing new assessment formats to address the increasing use of Point-of-Care (POC) ultrasound as we uphold our global mission of promoting patient safety through credentialing.  Your images and videos will illustrate POC clinical simulations representative of what clinicians might experience on a daily basis.

POC images and videos must be of diagnostic quality to be used in our assessments so that those taking the assessment are evaluated fairly and accurately.  Stills and moving images will be submitted to ARDMS online after all identifying information has been removed.  During the submission process, you will be asked to tag the images by identifying predefined parameters.  Of course, you will ensure that images are HIPAA-compliant and that you have permission to transfer all publishing rights to ARDMS.
