Wow, he REALLY thinks he is a doctor now! There is still conflict in the medical world as to the effect multiple sonograms can have on a fetus. Most doctors say that you should only have one or two during pregnancy unless otherwise indicated.The 43-year-old actor said the couple will do their own sonograms, which show fetus development with ultrasound waves.
Ultrasound sonography is an important tool used to determine the health of a fetus and is not meant as a novelty. Some doctors even question the safety of 3-d and 4-d sonograms since most are done for "fun" and not for diagnostic purposes.
I work in radiology and this is so rediculous to me- I really hope they are supplementing their own ultrasounds with one done by a professional who knows where and what to look for and how to interpret an ultrasound. And if their kid pops out with scrambled brains from the daily ultrasounds Tom does to bask in the glory of his creation, we he will have gotten what he deserves.
