Besides, online entry rather than manual entry is a must for sonography centres.In the backdrop of recent changes in the guidelines to carry out a sonography test, and strict implementation of the Pre-Natal Diagnostic Techniques (Regulation and Prevention of Misuse) Act, 1994 (PCPNDT), in Karnataka , soon every entry for a sonography will be online.To curb cross-border gender determination and female foeticide, and the practice to determine the gender of the foetus and abort female ones, the government is making Aadhaar mandatory for a sonography.A health department source at Bengaluru said that under the National Health Mission , the government of Karnataka will be introducing online entry of every woman who undergoes a sonography.
