The purpose of “Ultrasound Autism Connection?” is to bring attention to the possibility of a connection between prenatal ultrasounds and autism spectrum disease. The goals are to increase research and funding for research and to strengthen regulations and regulation enforcement.

The website www.ultrasound-autism.com is primarily a repository, a place to refer people seeking information on the topic.

We welcome your input and questions. Please contact us at info@ultrasound-autism.org

SITE DEVELOPER – Parrish Hirasaki

I am a mechanical engineering with a BSME from Duke University, an MSME from the University of Houston and decades of engineering experience. Although I worked on both the Apollo and Space Shuttle vehicles, I am not a rocket scientist. I have a more pertinent expertise. I am a thermal and vibrations specialist. I also have years of experience with industrial instrumentation including electronic calibrators.

During the first half of gestation, brain cells form and migrate into position. My hypothesis is that vibration from ultrasound is disrupting this migration and causing brain malformation. If autism is an injury rather than a disease, that explains why the symptoms vary.

Thankfully, my interest in this topic is not because of any personal connection to autism. It is because of my understanding of the technology and my awareness of the parallel timelines of prenatal ultrasound usage and increases in autism spectrum disorder.

This website was started in 2011. Now in 2023 with the study recently published by the CDC using SEED data  (66)  , I achieved my goal of getting the topic researched. The CDC still needs to gather data on children who (during the pandemic) were not exposed. However, after more than a decade, I am leaving this topic to others.
