3D/4D Ultrasound Imaging Q & A

What is 3D/4D ultrasound imaging?

3D/4D ultrasound imaging is a combination of still images and video. 3D provides high-definition still images. 4D adds motion — movement is the fourth dimension.

3D/4D ultrasound imaging uses high-frequency, noninvasive sound waves to develop images of specific structures inside your body. The procedures create realistic images of your unborn baby during pregnancy.

Collaborative Women’s Care offers ultrasound services for many other reasons too.

What are some other uses for 3D/4D ultrasound imaging?

Some of the many reasons your OB/GYN specialist might recommend 3D/4D ultrasound imaging are to view:

  • Images of your unborn baby
  • Detailed characteristics of your baby
  • Uterus
  • Ovaries
  • Other reproductive organs
  • Gallbladder
  • Blood blow
  • Thyroid gland
  • Lumps in breast tissue

Collaborative Women’s Care uses the latest advances in technology and techniques during 3D/4D ultrasound imaging procedures to ensure the best results possible.

How should I prepare for 3D/4D imaging?

There’s no special preparation needed before you undergo 3D/4D ultrasound imaging. Your specialist might ask you to go to the bathroom to empty your bladder or fill up your bladder, depending on the reason for your ultrasound. To have a full bladder, you’ll drink a glass of water before 3D/4D ultrasound imaging.

What should I expect during the procedure?

During the procedure, you rest comfortably on a chair or exam table. Your Collaborative Women’s Care provider applies a special gel to your skin to allow a hand-held device to glide easily and feel more comfortable. They use the device to emit painless, ultrasound energy to create 3D or 4D images.

What happens after 3D/4D ultrasound imaging?

After undergoing an ultrasound, there’s no downtime. That means you can resume a daily routine immediately. Your provider reviews the results of ultrasound images with you and lets you know if everything looks normal and healthy.

If you’ve had a 3D/4D ultrasound imaging procedure to view your unborn baby, the Collaborative Women’s Care team provides a printed picture of your baby for you to keep.
