3D/4D Ultrasound

The latest in ultrasound technology

Three-dimensional (3D) ultrasound was first developed in 1987 by Olaf Von Ramm and Stephen Smith at Duke University in Durham, North Carolina.  It is a medical imaging technique where sound waves are sent out from the transducer at various angles to produce sophisticated reconstructed images in a 3-dimensional volume, such as a box or a ball.  This allows one to see the fetus as if he or she were right in front of you.

3d ultrasound services in fuita4D ultrasound adds real-time motion to the 3D image.  With a 4D ultrasound, we can actually watch the baby move his or her hands and feet, sometimes roll over and even grab hands and feet as it actually occurs.

Clinical use of 3D/4D ultrasound technology is an area of intense research activity, especially in fetal anatomy scanning. The use of 3D/4D ultrasound has also been studied and shown to improve maternal-fetal bonding. There has been no conclusive evidence of harmful effects from ultrasound on a developing fetus.

We perform our own ultrasound exams in our office and utilize 3D ultrasound scanning as an added tool along with 2D scanning forOB ultrasound 3D 4D optimal results.  We also offer 4D ultrasound sessions through our 4D Memories packages for everyone who is interested in this family bonding experience.  This is a chance for family and friends to get a glimpse of your baby before birth.  For more information and pricing, check out our 4D Memories page.
