3d/4d Sonography

What is 3D/4D Ultrasound?

A 3D ultrasound scan refers to the ultrasound capturing a 3D image of your baby. A 4D scan is the dynamic recording of your baby's 3D ultrasound. This 4D Recording enables you to see all the different aspects of what your baby does in the womb. It is truly amazing!!

Our 3D / 4D Ultrasound scans make it possible to "See Your Baby" in amazing detail and say hello to your beautiful new addition before he or she is born.

Color Doppler ultrasound is a medical imaging technique which is used to provide visualization of the bloodflow, using color processing to add color to the image so that a doctor or care provider can clearly see what is happening inside the body. This technique requires the use of an ultrasound machine which is capable of color Doppler ultrasound, and can be performed in a hospital or clinic as an outpatient procedure. Having this imaging study performed is not usually painful, and the patient does not require sedatives.

Doppler ultrasound takes advantage of the Doppler effect to create a moving image of the inside of the body. In this technique, an ultrasound transducer is used to beam sound into the area of interest, and it reads the returning sound. When the sound bounces off a moving target like a blood vessel, the pitch changes as a result of the Doppler effect. The transducer can detect very subtle pitch changes and record them visually, creating an image which shows where blood is flowing, and in which direction.

Viewed in grayscale, the image can be a bit hard to read. This is where color Doppler ultrasound comes in, with the ultrasound machine assigning color values which depend on whether blood is moving towards or away from the transducer. In addition to showing the direction of flow, the colors also vary in intensity depending on the velocity of the flow, allowing people to see how quickly the blood is moving.

What makes our 3d/4d ultrasound scan so special?

We feel that realistic surface images provide a connector between parents and child that can be beneficial to the whole family.

Something special happens to parents when the 3D & 4D ultrasound scan images are seen compared to the 2D image because the picture of the baby is far more realistic. Not so long ago, parents were not able to see or hear their baby in the womb which made for much uncertainty and longing before the big day.

Now, we make it possible to not only see your baby, but also to see his or her features in amazing detail and also see your baby move whilst in the womb. Many parents have seen their baby perform somersaults on screen or watched with amusement as their baby waves at them or gets hiccups.

Mums and dads alike love our 3D I 4D ultrasound scans and many come back time and time again to capture each stage of their baby's development.
