Revision 3 with minor amendments


This document is as a result of collaboration between the Society and College of Radiographers (SCoR) and the British Medical Ultrasound Society (BMUS). Originally published in December 2015 it is reviewed every year to maintain currency.

This is ‘Revision 3’ and is dated December 2018 with minor amendments being made in March 2019.
These Guidelines are not designed to be prescriptive but to inform good ultrasound practice. They are a further development of the former United Kingdom Association of Sonographers (UKAS) Guidelines (2008).
They provide a valuable source of information for many ultrasound related topics with active weblinks to relevant organisations and further advice and guidance.
