Effective January 1, 2018, diagnostic medical sonography is regulated with the CMRTO as a fifth specialty. In the Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics, ‘members’ refers to all members of the CMRTO; that is members in all of the five specialties: radiography, radiation therapy, nuclear medicine, magnetic resonance and diagnostic medical sonography. The Standards of Practice and Code of Ethics have been updated to include the specialty of diagnostic medical sonography, and some other updates to reflect current practice of all members.
