Ultrasound in Television and the Movies….What is The Worst You Have Seen?

This is actually a physician for a news article holding a transvaginal ultrasound probe while performing a               transabdominal ultrasound.

 

With the recent new of Juno star Ellen Page decision to come out of the closet actually just brought back the memories of the horrible portrayal of ultrasound in a movie Juno. The ultrasound tech is portrayed as a heartless picture taker. Or of the many times that ultrasound has been portrayed incorrectly on  television. It is always the wrong image, portrayed as thoughtless or done by a doctor who just plops it down and gets a diagnosis. Frankly, it pisses me off! What is the worst case of you have seen? Feel free to post…..
