4-D


Clinical use of this technology is an area of intense research activity especially in fetal anomaly scanning but there are also popular uses that have been shown to improve fetal-maternal bonding. 4D fetal ultrasounds are similar to 3D scans, with the difference associated with time: 4D allows a 3-dimensional picture in real time, rather than delayed, due to the lag associated with the computer constructed image, as in classic 3-dimensional ultrasound.

Does this take the place of a 2D ultrasound?
No. Women seeking an elective 4D ultrasound with The Center of Imaging Excellence must already be receiving prenatal care with a healthcare provider and must already have have a regular 2D diagnostic ultrasound.

Will I always have beautiful pictures of my baby?
Usually, but not always. Sometimes the baby is persistently looking down; the amniotic fluid may not be adequate; or the placenta may be obstructing the view.

We make no promises that the images will be similar to those you may have seen elsewhere, or that we can meet everyone's expectations, but we will do the best that we can with each given situation. Every baby scans differently depending on it's gestational age, position, amount of amniotic fluid and the mother's condition.

We promise to make every effort to obtain the best image possible of the baby that can be seen.

Does insurance pay for a 4D Ultrasound?
No. Women seeking an elective 4D ultrasound with The Center of Imaging Excellence must already be receiving prenatal care with a healthcare provider and must already have have a regular 2D diagnostic ultrasound.


You will be given a CD and pictures with the images of your baby before you leave to take with you.
