Souvenir scanning

The SoR has formally adopted the British Medical Ultrasound Society statement on souvenir scanning.

The statement recommends that ultrasound scans should not be performed solely for producing souvenir images or recordings of a fetus or embryo.

It adds: ‘The production of souvenir images or recordings for the parents to keep is reasonable if they are produced during a diagnostic scan, provided that this does not require the ultrasound exposure to be greater in time or magnitude (as indicated by the displayed MI and TI) than that necessary to produce the required diagnostic information’.

The full statement can be read on the BMUS website.
