Frequently Asked Questions
How do I know if my report is acceptable?
AIUM guidelines state that the final report should be generated, signed and dated by the interpreting physician. The final report should include the location and contact information of the ultrasound facility and must include a dated physician signature (electronic signatures are acceptable).
*A screen shot from the ultrasound machine is not considered an acceptable report.*
Sonographer worksheet: Once the interpreting physician signs and dates the sonographer’s worksheet, it then becomes the final report (as long as it includes mention of all the required elements).
