The Union Health Ministry may soon direct State MCI boards to name the doctors who have been convicted earlier and ensure that their license to practice is cancelled permanently.

A directive has also been issued to keep a  vigil on the number of ultrasound machines in districts  including details of ultrasound clinics/imaging centres.

It is now mandatory to fill Form F , which will soon be available online. The radiologist in the ultrasound clinics will need to fill up Form F before conducting ultrasound on the pregnant woman with details of the patient and doctor as well as the reason for conducting sonography.
