3D ultrasounds are still pictures of the baby or anatomical part
in three dimensions. Add the time factor, and it is 4D. This allows
a live view of your baby while in the womb. Imagine seeing your
baby yawn, hiccup, move its little hands and face. It is a truly
amazing experience that enhances the early bonding between the baby
and the family.
The optimal time for a 4D scan is between 26 and
34 weeks. We can still manage to get some amazing pictures after
22 weeks and as late as 36 weeks. Every baby is different.
We scan only the patients who are currently under
the prenatal care of a physician or nurse midwife. We perform our
4D exams on patients who have already had their diagnostic ultrasound
performed. If not , with an order from your doctor or nurse midwife,
we can provide this service as well.
We do suggest the patient drink plenty of water
about 1 week prior to having the 3D / 4D examination.
