Live Scanning for Educational Purposes

Live scanning of human subjects should be permitted only under controlled conditions and only when there is a medical or public health benefit. The education of health care specialists in what are the latest ultrasound technologies, their capabilities, and how best used in these individuals’ own hands is a critical exercise for evaluation and for skill development. At the present time, this benefit is very difficult to obtain in any other way, and ultimately benefits future patients.
