3d 4d scan

What is 3D 4D Ultrasound?

Ultrasound tests in 3D and 4D enable you to see your unborn child in much more detail than a typical 2D scan. Ultrasounds in 3D and 4D are optional. They’re not regular prenatal exams. Doctors also give them to women who want them as a courtesy.

3D ultrasounds

Several two-dimensional pictures are taken at different angles for 3D ultrasounds, and then grouped to create a three-dimensional image. For example, instead of just having a profile view of the face of your baby, you can see the entire surface in a 3D ultrasound.

4D Ultrasounds

A 4D ultrasound is similar to a 3D ultrasound, except like a film, the picture shows motion. So you’d see your unborn baby doing stuff in real-time in a 4D sonogram (like opening and closing his eyes)

What does the scan do?

Like standard ultrasounds, to produce a picture of your baby in your womb, 3D and 4D ultrasounds use sound waves. What is different is that 3D ultrasounds generate your baby’s three-dimensional picture, while 4D ultrasounds generate a live video effect, like a film that you can watch.

How is this scan performed?

You have to lie down and a specialist will put the certain gel on your stomach. This causes the sound waves to be transported. Then, to get a picture, the specialist will hold a probe across your abdomen and move it around.

What you should know about ultrasound results?

You can get pictures or a copy of a 4D video afterward to take home. If something is wrong, the doctor will tell you. Keep in note that to detect issues with your infant, 3D and 4D ultrasound scans are not usually used.
