3D/4D Ultrasound FAQ

Ultrasound technology uses high-frequency sound waves that bounce off tissue and return to the ultrasound machine at different frequencies, depending on the density of the tissues. It then translates those returning sound waves into images for viewing on the computer monitor.

We conduce ultrasounds at any time during a patients pregnancy. For medical reasons, the best imaging results are usually seen between 27 and 31 weeks gestation.

Most of the time, parents can see their baby’s head, spine, hands and fingers, feet and toes, heartbeat and more. Often we see the baby’s profile and face. With smaller babies, larger portions of the baby can be viewed at one time on the monitor.

It varies. Some babies sleep throughout the ultrasound and move very little. Others show off; touching their face, sucking their thumbs, grabbing their feet and more.

We will be happy to check the gender if you so desire, but we recommend waiting until 20 weeks gestation or later. Gender determination cannot be guaranteed since we must rely on the cooperation of your baby and other factors beyond our control.

No. There is nothing special you need to do for your ultrasound appointment.

No. We will actually get better 3D and 4D pictures if the baby is not very active during the session.

No. Since we are not performing an ultrasound based on medical necessity, insurance will not pay.

Generally, clients are in the ultrasound room for 30 minutes.

Absolutely! Due to limited space, we do ask that you limit your accompaniment to three family members or friends. Small children need to be accompanied by an adult other than the patient, and no food or drinks are allowed.
