3D/4D Ultrasound examination
What will our baby look like?
3D examination emerged as a new option in ultrasonic imaging 10 years ago. This method generates a three-dimensional image from a series of classical two-dimensional images..
Parents find this type of imaging very attractive. For the uninitiated, orientation in a classical 2D image can be problematic. A 3D image of good quality shows the surfaces and structures of the foetus fairly well. It resembles a regular black-and-white photograph, so that the parents‘ vision of their child is quite real and concrete..
Yes. The instrument allows all data to be processed in real time, so the imaging procedure is the same as in a standard ultrasound scan. However, since the procedure is more sensitive to foetal position and acoustic conditions, it usually takes longer to capture the foetus in an optimal position for imaging..
