The BNMS is an organisation concerned with the clinical practice, education, research and development of nuclear medicine within the UK. Membership of the BNMS is open to those who have a substantial interest and involvement in the provision of nuclear medicine services. The Society is a registered charity, which works largely through its members to promote the clinical benefits of the speciality.
Formerly the Radiology History and Heritage Trust, became the British Society for the History of Radiology following a very successful centenary celebration year. The joint founding societies are BIR, IPEM and CoR, later joined by The Wellcome Trust, The Scottish College of Radiologists, The Irish Radiologists and, from time to time, the British Museum. There are also about 4 independant members who have expressed a desire to belong or provide particular expertise.
IPEM is one of five Member Organisations that make up CASE which was formed in 1993 and exists to ensure that the education and training of sonographers in the United Kingdom is delivered at the highest level. CASE's philosophy is to promote best ultrasound practise through the accreditation of those training programmes that develop safe and competent ultrasound practitioners. The majority of its activities relate to supporting those Institutions that offer, or wish to offer courses leading to the award of a Masters, Postgraduate Diploma/Certificate in Medical or clinical Ultrasound.
Each member organisation is unique and has its own obligations to its membership and its own agenda while CASE brings them together to provide a forum for the interchange of ideas in which shared views may be synthesised, and thus inform education and training programmes.

CASE is looking for IPEM members to join its team of accreditors. More information can be found here.
