Tom Cruise 'putting baby at risk'
According to IMDb.com, officials at the American College of Radiology (ACR) are concerned by Cruise's revelation that he bought the device to monitor his child's progress, and they're even warning him that he could be breaking the law if he does the scans himself.
Dr. Carol M. Rumack of the ACR Ultrasound Commission said: "Untrained people, even if they have the financial means, should not buy, or be allowed to buy and operate, ultrasound machines which are, in fact, medical devices and should not be used without a medical indication.
"The ACR is concerned that Tom Cruise has been badly advised regarding the use and potential abuse of ultrasound.
"If it is not medically necessary, the use of ultrasound raises unnecessary physical risk to the foetus," she said.
