How does the 3D ultrasound differ from the 4D ultrasound?

The 4D ultrasound adds dimesions of motion for a clearer, more realistic image. The 3D ultra sound image is a flat, still image.

What are the negative effects of a 3D/4D ultrasound?

Can you guarantee the 3D/4D pictures will be clear?

No. Many things are out of the sonographer’s control, for instance, the baby’s position, the amount of amniotic fluid and the mother’s physical build or skin type.

What do I need to do before the 3D/4D appointment?

Be sure to drink a sufficient amount of water in the days prior to your appointment. This will help the amniotic fluid become clear. It is recommended that you drink fruit juice within the hour before your ultrasound to keep the baby awake during your session. (Please follow your doctor’s orders if you have been instructed otherwise. Always follow your doctor’s instructions first).
