What is a 3D and 4D Ultrasound?
Formerly, only 2D or flat pictures of the fetus were possible. Now 3D and 4D images are available that reveal significantly higher detail of the baby. We have both 3D and 4D imaging available on-site and the results are simply amazing. With our 4D ultrasound scanning parents are able to see their unborn child’s yawns, blinks, stretches, and facial detail in extremely high resolution. You’ll have a whole new idea of what the child will look like at birth. The leap from 2D to 3D and 4D imaging is absolutely staggering!
Patients desiring a 3D/4D ultrasound also receive:
- Black and white still shots of the ultrasound
- A DVD with video footage of the baby in action
What to Expect during the Ultrasound
The ultrasound procedure is painless, easy, and quick. We will apply a conductive gel to the abdomen. While this occurs, there will be a live monitor in view that will allow you to see your unborn child. Keepsakes are derived from this session which usually lasts about 20 minutes. Ultrasounds are a safe and effective method of checking the fetus for abnormalities, pre-birth conditions, and size. Our OB/GYN will also use the ultrasound as a part of their prenatal diagnostic strategy.
