MIMAS 

Our Mission
We serve to establish advanced ultrasound medical imaging in underserved  and low resourced rural areas of the Americas and Caribbean using a           Christ-centered faith-based approach.
We partner with God so that through this work we not only improve the health of people in these regions, but also promote and strengthen faith in Jesus Christ both for ourselves and for the patients we care for.
The Problem
ACCESS TO MEDICAL IMAGING IN RURAL AREAS
Unlike the Urban Areas, Access to Modern Health Care Tools in Rural Latin America and the Carribean is Very Limited. 

With far less access to medical imaging the diagnosis and treament of curable diseases remains the Number One problem of the underserved communities of Latin America and the Carribean.  While Xray is sometimes available, rarely does advanced imaging applications such as CT, MRI, Ultrasound or Nuclear Medicine exist. 

Further, Rural Urban areas Access to Quality Medical Imaging May Remain Limited or Practically Non-Existent for the following reasons:

Trained Personnel Prefer Living in an Urban or Suburban Environment so Training Personnel at Rural Clinics Will Likely Result in Them Moving Away to Areas Where Increased Opportunity and Higher Pay Are Available

Resources such as power, medical supplies, are limited making advanced medical imaging such as CT, MRI, Nuclear Medicine Impractical.

Poor roads and long distances make use of mobile imaging facilities impractical

Diagnostic Ultrasound


Ultrasound is the only truly feasible modern imaging solution for resource-limited rural areas because:

•Units are low cost and portable making it easy to move them to remote areas

•Ultrasound systems have low power requirements ranging from 20 watts to about 150 watts and can be easily supported even in remote villages—using solar power if needed.

•Ultrasound systems require no expensive support equipment such as the film, chemicals, computed radiography cassettes or expensive digital sensors  needed by x-ray

•Expensive radiation shielding is not needed

•Images are relatively small decreasing data storage needs
