1 doctor agrees

In brief: Yes

Many years ago, there was a hypothetical belief that high frequency sound waves (ultrasound) used to perform a sonogram might harm the developing baby's hearing.
Now, after literally millions of ultrasounds preformed on millions of babies, our fears have been relieved -- sonograms are safe. But a mom might still see a consent form before a sonogram for one reason only: medico-legal protection.

As radiologist I agree. As attorney I argue that we may not have seen all the possible effects from U/S as of yet. Evaluate risk/benefit.
