A short history of ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology

A short history of ultrasound in Obstetrics and Gynecology

http://www.ob-ultrasound.net/history.html

Very cool resource for the history of ultrasound. Something I noticed was that Japan really pushed ultrasound for prenatal scanning a lot harder when it first came out in ObGyn. If memory serves me correct, I think Japan used ultrasound for ten years or so more than other countries.

Coincidentally, they also have significantly more autism.

I’ll probably go into those statistics more in another post.
