Topics: Managers, Ultrasound


This document updates and replaces previous advice from the Society and College of Radiographers (SCoR) dating from 1995 relating to the sale of images and determining the fetal gender. Advice is also included relating to the commercial aspects of the determination of fetal gender or other scan extensions (e.g. 3D/4D) that may be suggested from time to time by NHS Trusts or Health Boards. This document refers to NHS commissioned ultrasound examinations performed for screening or diagnostic purposes as part of the Fetal Anomaly Screening Programme (FASP, England), or other scans performed for screening, diagnostic or monitoring purposes that are funded as part of overall NHS maternity provision. This document does not extend to ultrasound examinations performed where a 'social' or 'souvenir' scan has been requested by a woman and is outside normal NHS provision.
