2d/3d/4d Ultrasound Services

2D Ultrasound
 

2D ultrasound is the same imaging used at your doctor’s office. It is seen in black and white. We use 2D ultrasound to confirm fetal number, fetal position, fetal gender, and the presence of fetal cardiac activity. Your baby’s profile and the presence of hair on the top of the head can be seen with 2D imaging. 2D imaging is a great way to see your baby’s whole body, as he or she kicks, moves, and turns. We can see the baby yawn, blink, suckle, kick, wiggle, and wave in 2D.

We use 2D imaging for greater accuracy in our gender confirmation scans. You can come in for a gender confirmation scan starting at 15 weeks. Fuller figured mothers can come in starting at 18 weeks. We won’t guess when it comes to your baby’s gender. If we are unsure of the gender because the baby is not in a good position, we will gladly offer you a free rescan.

3D Ultrasound
Our 3D ultrasound session captures still images of your baby three-dimensionally. Be sure to purchase a CD to capture your baby’s precious portraits. When a transducer is placed on the body, it emits sound waves into the body, listens for the returning echoes, and then generates an image depending on the size, location, and depiction of those echoes. 3D imaging technology creates still images that show realistic and detailed face features. It is safe because 3D/4D ultrasound scans use the same intensity of power as 2D scanning.

There are a couple of factors that can determine the quality of your 3D ultrasound images. Mainly, your baby’s position. If baby is face down, we will have to wait until baby turns. Even if the baby is face up, the umbilical cord or baby’s hands can hide the face. The baby can also be snuggled up close to the wall of the uterus, which usually happens when mom needs to drink more water. We need a pocket of amniotic fluid in front of baby’s face to get good pictures. By drinking 8 cups of water a day for one week prior to your session, this should ensure a proper fluid volume. An anterior placenta or increased maternal tissue/scarring can also reduce the clarity of your baby’s pictures. Every baby scans differently according to their gestational age.
   
4D Ultrasound
4D imaging captures the baby's movement, showing a live picture during your ultrasound session. Often we capture baby yawning, blinking, suckling its fingers or toes.  This is saved onto a DVD which is then set to baby music for later viewing.

  • wonderful experience
  • D.V. - Aug 21, 2012
  • The staff is great. This was my first time doing a 3d sonogram. I came back a second time to get clearer photos because my baby girl wouldn't cooperate. I would definitely come back again if I were to have another baby. Nora was great in trying to get great photos. We got video and photos..
