Filming during scans puts baby at risk

23rd July 2010

The Society and College of Radiographers have issued guidance asking that parents-to-be do not film during ultrasound examinations.

Experts are concerned that sonographers could be distracted by filming and as a consequence miss important issues with the foetus. Nigel Thomson, from the society, said: "The concern is that recording can affect the concentration of the sonographer doing the examination and he or she may be distracted and miss vital observations."
