What is the provision under PC PNDT ACT for Doctors who is exclusively doing Echocardiography only: 1. Whether they also required PNDT Registration for Echocardiography. 2. And what about six months ultrasound training program for such Doctors [while six months training program is focusing on abdominal and pelvic region only]. In this condition how this training program is going to be beneficial for them. And is it making any sense that Doctors who is practicing cardiology and doing Echocardiography getting training of pelvic and abdominal region, while these areas are not of their concerns at all.
