Francis Among First To Receive Certification

Lisa Francis MD, CCD, FACR, board certified rheumatologist at The Clinics of St. Alexius, has been awarded the Registered in Musculoskeletal Sonography (RMSK) Pioneer Certificate by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS). Dr. Francis is one of the first physicians in the country to have met the rigorous qualifications for certification in musculoskeletal sonography.

ARDMS credentials represent the highest level of competence in the medical-imaging modality of musculoskeletal sonography (ultrasound). The RMSK credential validates the clinical expertise fundamental to musculoskeletal sonography practice worldwide, and recognizes the skills and knowledge required for making consistent and reliable diagnoses in musculoskeletal ultrasound.
