    As ultrasound equipment develops and becomes more portable, it is much easier for members of the public to access either their own handheld ultrasound machine or probe that connects to a mobile phone/tablet, or to hire a machine for a limited period of time.

    Both the Society and College of Radiographers (SCoR) and the British Medical Ultrasound Society (BMUS) recommend that ultrasound examinations are only performed by appropriate healthcare professionals, who can interpret the ultrasound images accurately and use the equipment safely, to reduce any potential harm to the baby or anxiety for parents.
