To promote public health by providing free diagnostic and screening ultrasound procedures to those members of the community who are uninsured or unable to pay for the potentially life-saving procedure.
To enrich clinical education and training of the next generation diagnostic medical sonographers.
In 2018, a sonographer, an educator, and a medical doctor came up with an idea for a free diagnostic ultrasound clinic where experienced sonography teacher-practitioners and their students would work together to provide life-saving procedures to the underserved members of the community while creating an exciting real-life learning environment for the students.
With your support, we can meet the growing demand for our clinic's services.
Every $100 donated will help one patient to receive a potentially life-saving diagnostic ultrasound.
Every $1,000 donated will support ten new patients and twenty hours of clinical training for the student-volunteers.
A $10,000 donation will help bring 100 new patients and will allow ten sonography students to complete their clinical training and to enter the healthcare workforce.
300 patients receive 100% free diagnostic ultrasound procedures every year;
80% of our patients report they do not have insurance or would not be able to afford the procedure elsewhere;
50 sonography students receive real-life clinical training each year at the UMI Community Imaging Clinic under the supervision of experienced credentialed sonographers.

“The ultrasounds performed at UMI Clinic have been thorough and high quality. Without access to these high quality imaging studies at no cost to the patient, many of our patients would have to forgo surveillance and thus be at high risk for liver cancer that is beyond cure at the time of detection.
