The purpose of the New Zealand Obstetric Ultrasound Guidelines (the Guideline) is to establish detailed, quality guidelines for maternity ultrasound, as recommended by the Maternity Ultrasound Advisory Group (MUAG), to ensure that diagnostic ultrasound usage in New Zealand is clinically appropriate and uniformly of high quality.
This Guideline was developed by a working group of expert clinicians with support from the Ministry of Health. There was also consultation with the sector with feedback consolidated into the final document.
The Guideline has been designed for use by health professionals such as radiographers/sonographers, radiologists, obstetric doctors, midwives and general practitioners.
