what are some of the ethical and social issues of ultra sound scanning in detail please
Ultrasound scanning is a medical test that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the inside of the body. With the application to the pregnant women it is used to diagnose development abnormalities inside the mother’s womb.
Ultrasound’s ‘window on the womb’ brings ethical challenges for balancing maternal and fetal health interests. Ultrasound also raises many ethical issues, including those of antenatal screening for fetal anomalies, fetal sex determination, and selective termination of pregnancy.
