What is the RMSK and do I need it in order to apply for accreditation in musculoskeletal ultrasound?
General Questions
The RMSK is an individual certification offered through the American Registry of Diagnostic Medical Sonographers (ARDMS) for musculoskeletal ultrasound.

AIUM Ultrasound Practice Accreditation does not require physicians to become certified in RMSK.
