Ultrasound is one of the most important imaging techniques. The resolution is remarkable, and it has now become a pocket instrument used as part of routine clinical examination. There is no ionizing radiation making its use in pregnancy appropriate. A few decades ago few would have predicted its pivotal role.

It focuses on Ian Donald Regius Professor of Midwifery at the University of Glasgow who pioneered the technique.
