Dear All,

It has been observed that PC & PNDT Act has become destructive tool in the hands of appropriate authorities. Every CMO uses it at its own whims and Fancy. At so many instances the ultrasound machines are being sealed on drop of a hat. The objections are being raised that improper filling of Form “F”. The referral slips do not have obstetric history, the record is not proper. Everybody knows how the record is being kept at civil hospitals versus private diagnostic centre. Every Civil Surgeon feels that by Gagging the Radiologist the female feticide will stop. But alas the results are not much encouraging. We need to dig in the details of this social evil and better results could be obtained. Not by keeping radiologist as evil doer but as a team member.

here are some suggestions to control skewed sex ratio

They are laying more focus on methodology to fill the Form F and Paperwork rather nabbing the culprits. Which generally proves to be a futile effort? As someone doing this illegal work will not keep any record of this act. And will keep the timing at odd hours when the controlling authorities are least expected to <!-- @page { size: 8.5in 11in; margin: 0.79in } P { margin-bottom: 0.08in } -->nab them. More over it is possible only in connivance with the authorities itself in some cases. But most of the civil surgeons are struggling hard to stop female feticide.

"This is life, and in life, one has to face many challenges," he continued, in a philosophical tone, and would sometimes even start falling back on the "Karma" theory which binds the life of Hindu civilization.

Time for Radiology Driven Six Sigma

Radiology is a specialty which has to interact with all specialties and is at the core of modern day medical practice. So, when thinking of improving the hospital facilities and culture of our medical profession isn't it natural that we have a Radiology Driven Six Sigma?


What Is Six Sigma?
Six Sigma is a process improvement methodology that focuses on eliminating defects by reducing variation. Six Sigma relies heavily on statistical analysis of data and strong problem-solving techniques.

Six Sigma was first developed by Motorola in the early 1990s. It has been used extensively within companies such as GE, Allied Signal, and Sony and is now being widely deployed as a business strategy in organizations across the world.
