We are proud medical experts applying our skills and knowledge to make a difference in the world. We bring together the global community of medical imaging professionals to make the case for diagnostic imaging. Utilising our collective knowledge, we collaborate with global partners to develop the best solutions for their context. Our concern for others drives all that we do. Together we work to make change happen.
A world where all people have access to appropriate diagnostic imaging services and professionals trained to use them.
To strengthen access to quality diagnostic imaging in underserved areas of low- and middle-income countries. To educate and support professionals in the use of relevant and appropriate diagnostic imaging equipment and techniques.
Our increasingly digitised and interconnected world has opened up real opportunities to provide sustainable local and remote support to healthcare workers in underserved communities, while technical advances are rapidly reducing the cost of basic equipment.
