What Are the Advantages of 3D and 4D Ultrasounds?

The joy parents have when seeing their baby for the first time on the ultrasound screen is one that we can’t help but feel too, no matter how many times we experience it! Watching them hear their child’s rapid heartbeat for the first time is nothing short of electrifying!

For most parents it’s the excitement of the experience that they look forward to, but the real reason to get an ultrasound is to check that the baby is healthy and developing normally. The amount of ultrasounds a woman has during her pregnancy depends on various factors (if it’s a healthy/straightforward pregnancy, the particular OB/GYN’s practice and so on).While ultrasounds are safe, it is recommended not to perform more than are medically necessary. That being said there are many reasons that getting an ultrasound is an important part of your prenatal care.

With the amazing advancements in technology and modern medicine, the information we can now obtain via 3D and 4D ultrasounds is incomparable! This has vastly improved our ability to assess your baby’s well-being. It has also allowed doctors to see more subtle changes associated with certain problems that can arise in pregnancy.

Here are some of the 3D and 4D ultrasound advantages and how they help to determine important information about your baby’s health:

  • Confirm gestational age and estimated due date
  • Monitor size
  • Ensure sufficient amniotic fluid
  • Ensure baby is in a head-down position
  • Evaluate the baby’s movements
  • Evaluate blood flow through the placenta

With modern technology, our state-of-the-art advanced ultrasound equipment provides 3D and 4D images of your baby. You can see the actual face of your unborn child, with every facial detail, as well as the activities that your baby is doing inside – from sleeping and thumb-sucking to kicking and laughing.  Not only does this allows you to start bonding from the very beginning, you also get the peace of mind that your baby looks healthy, and if your pregnancy is challenging, a 3D and 4D ultrasound helps to ensure the best possible outcome.
