3D/4D OB Ultrasound
What is an Ultrasound?
Ultrasound is an imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves, generated by a handheld device called a transducer. The transducer is placed on the skin where it uses the echoes created by the sound waves to create images of the internal organs. Ultrasound does not involve radiation, which is one of the reasons that it is routinely used to examine fetuses in utero.
This highly publicized 4-D imaging tool is the ideal method of viewing the baby before it is born. The advanced technology in this state-of-the-art ultrasound exam provides a clear image of the baby that can be used to examine such things as exciting as the baby’s sex. No longer will the ultrasound image of the baby be a blur on the screen. For a keepsake, the images can be saved on disc for the expectant parents. This is not a diagnostic imaging test. The radiologist will not review this scan and a report will not be dictated. This test is best performed between 24 and 32 weeks.
