Does it matter where I have my 3D/4D ultrasound done?

diagnostic obstetric ultrasound.

many weeks along should I be at the time of the ultrasound?

between 24-34 weeks, however, we can obtain beautiful
images as early as 12 weeks. Many women choose to
come in twice or more (up to four visits permitted) to see
their baby at various stages.

welcome your family and friends to share the joy of this once-in-a-lifetime

lifetime. In most cases beautiful 3D pictures are
possible but occasionally we encounter a camera shy baby due to factors such as position or maternal habitus.

exactly is ultrasound?
An ultrasound (sometimes called a sonogram) is
a noninvasive diagnostic
test that uses sound waves to create
images of internal organs. The sonographer uses a hand-held
device to transmit sound waves through your uterus
that echo off your baby. A computer then translates the
echoing sounds into video images that reveal your baby's
shape, position, and movements. The series of television-monitor
images is called a sonogram. The words
ultrasound and sonogram are often used interchangeably.
The differences in a 2D and 3D/4D ultrasound
are in the sophistication of the equipment and computer
studies conducted over the last 40 years have shown
that ultrasound causes no harm to the baby and there
is no cumulative effect from receiving multiple scans. The
equipment used by BabyView™ is certified and is in compliance
with government regulations for obstetrical use.
Any concerns you may have should be discussed with your
physician. BabyView ultrasounds are strictly non-diagnostic and are
not an alternative to care provided by
As an additional precaution, BabyView™ limits scan duration,
similar to the time used in diagnostic scanning.
3D and 4D ultrasound imaging does not increase the frequency
or “power” levels used in 2D imaging.

What does 4D mean?
The 4th dimension "D" is time, therefore when you are watching a baby during a live scan that is 4D. 3D, the third dimension, is depth and refers to still photographs of the baby.
