Topics: Ultrasound

Summary

The Clinical Imaging Board (CIB) has previously issued a statement in recognition of the importance of correct patient identification when undertaking diagnostic imaging procedures utilising ionising radiation. This has been adapted to include advice published by the British Medical Ultrasound Society (BMUS) so as to apply to medical ultrasound examinations. These examinations do not involve the use of ionising radiation but the good practice principles of safe patient identification are the same. This guidance is endorsed by BMUS.
