Fetal ultrasounds are not for entertainment, FDA warns

Ultrasound SmartBrief | Mar 05, 2015

Facilities offering keepsake 3D fetal ultrasounds are gaining popularity, but the trend is not in the best interest of the fetus or the expectant mother, according to the FDA. Diagnostic ultrasounds performed by trained clinicians are an important tool for monitoring health, but tissue heating and cavitation can occur with repeated ultrasound with unknown long-term effects, according to the FDA, so use of the technology should be restricted to medical settings. Additionally, keepsake ultrasound centers don't have personnel trained to detect or explain abnormalities, which may give some pregnant women a false sense of security. CBS News (03/04)
