Abstract

Recently reported guidelines from the Society of Diagnostic Medical Sonography regarding disinfection of ultrasound probes and infection control policies for ultrasound procedures conflict with accepted clinical norms in vein practices and recommendations from the American Institute for Ultrasound in Medicine. We have provided a review of these conflicting policy recommendations and new proposed practice recommendations and a call for physicians who perform ultrasound-guided procedures to be involved in the process of development and critical review of societal recommendations.
