    Summary

    SCoR believes that, similar to the NHS Breast Screening Programme, assistant practitioners who have been suitably trained could undertake this single organ imaging within a supervisory framework. The screening unit will be overseen by a lead clinician and fully trained sonographers who will have special responsibility for quality assurance of staff and screening equipment, staff accreditation, and monitoring of clinical performance. They will also be available to give advice when required, especially in the event of complicated examinations and incidental findings.
