Four Dimensional (4D) Prenatal Ultrasound
Ultrasound uses sound waves to create an image of your baby in your womb. 4D ultrasound uses images from a 3D ultrasound to create a live video effect, like a movie. 4D ultrasound provides you real-time imaging showing your unborn baby’s movement and surface anatomy—you can watch your baby smile or yawn.
In addition to providing an opportunity to see your baby’s face for the first time, a 4D ultrasound may also assist your physician in the identification of certain birth defects that may not show up on a standard ultrasound. Our radiologists review your ultrasound and we send a report to your physician the next day. For the clinical results regarding your and your baby’s health, contact your physician.
For an additional fee, we will prepare a CD of the images of your baby. Please allow 48 hours for its completion.
Please be aware that there are facilities that provide ultrasound images and videos solely for entertainment purposes, which contradicts the guidelines of the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine.
There is no radiation involved in ultrasound imaging.
