French resolve ultrasounds practice crisis:

This article was originally published in Clinica

Executive Summary

The French Senate adopted on February 19 measures that end strikes by ultrasound technicians. The professionals were taking action because of a high court ruling that made them vulnerable to being sued for failing to diagnose handicaps in unborn children and to having to meet the lifelong costs of care of the handicapped child. It therefore resulted in a massive increase in insurance premiums for ultrasound technicians (see Clinica No 996, p 8). The measures adopted on February 19 state that a doctor or hospital can be sued if they are at fault in the way they act, but cannot be held responsible for the life-long costs of the handicapped child; these are the responsibility of these state.
