Attention colleagues performing obstetrics ultrasound, kindly find notice for your attention.

Dear colleagues
The ultrasound examination offered by the HPCSA Professional Board for Radiography and Clinical Technology (PBRCT) includes obstetrics, gynaecology, abdomen, small parts and deep vein thrombosis (DVT).
