"Sound Advice" investigates an area of medicine that has remained virtually unreported. That area is diagnostic ultrasound. The investigation found that there are thousands of ultrasound practitioners who are inadequately trained, yet routinely use this technology which is highly dependent upon the skill of the person doing it. ABC found that there is very little control over who is permitted to practice it, there are not training requirements, and certification is strictly voluntary and the exception rather than the rule.
