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).

SORSA therefore requested the HPCSA Professional Board for Radiography and Clinical Technology (PBRCT) to urgently consider the negative impact this exclusion would have on service delivery of obstetric ultrasound to the general public.
