3D – 4D Pregnancy Ultrasound

Every heartbeat, tiny movement, growth milestone – we care about your baby’s precious health journey.

Ultrasound scanning during pregnancy is essential for monitoring the development and health of the fetus. It allows healthcare providers to assess the baby’s growth, detect any abnormalities, and determine the position of the placenta. Regular ultrasounds, including the nuchal translucency (NT) scan, help in identifying potential issues early, ensuring timely medical intervention if needed.

Additionally, they provide expectant mothers with the first images of their baby, fostering maternal-fetal bonding. This non-invasive and safe technology is a crucial tool in antenatal care, contributing significantly to the well-being of both mother and child

NT Scan (Nuchal Translucency)

Available at 11-13 weeks, this scan assesses the developmental markers in early pregnancy.

2nd Trimester Detailed Scan

Conducted between 18-26 weeks, this scan provides an in-depth look at the baby’s development and growth.

3rd Trimester Growth Scan

Offered after the 26th week, this scan focuses on the baby’s growth and overall health as the due date approaches.

Gender Scan

Available after 16 weeks, this scan can reveal the baby’s gender, depending on the baby’s position.

Types of Ultrasound Scans Offered

3D Ultrasound

3D ultrasound is an advanced imaging technique used during pregnancy to create three-dimensional images of the fetus. A 3D ultrasound is a medical scan that creates detailed, three-dimensional images of the baby during pregnancy. It gives a clearer view of the baby’s shape and features compared to standard 2D ultrasound. Primarily used for parents to visualize their baby, it is not usually for medical diagnosis.

4D Ultrasound

A 4D ultrasound is an advanced pregnancy scan that captures moving 3D images of the fetus, like a video. It shows the baby’s real-time movements and expressions, enhancing bonding experiences. While more detailed than 2D and 3D ultrasounds, it’s primarily for parental viewing, not for in-depth medical diagnostics, which rely on traditional 2D ultrasounds.

Differences Between 3D and 4D Ultrasounds in Pregnancy

  • 3D Ultrasound: Provides detailed, static three-dimensional images of the fetus. These images offer a clear and shaped view of the baby’s features and body, but they are still pictures without motion.
  • 4D Ultrasound: Builds upon 3D technology by adding the element of time, resulting in moving 3D images. This means you can see the baby in real-time motion, capturing activities like smiling, yawning, or kicking.

Pregnancy Ultrasound Scanning Schedule By Week

Typically, a healthy pregnancy involves two to three ultrasounds. This schedule may vary if there are complications or irregularities detected. The guide below, structured by trimester, outlines when and why ultrasounds are performed, giving expectant mothers a clear idea of what to expect during each scan. Remember, individual needs may adjust this general timeline.

First Trimester (Weeks 0-12):

Weeks 6-8: First Ultrasound, Also Known as a Sonogram The main purpose of the first ultrasound is to confirm the pregnancy and estimate the due date. You’ll see a black and white image of a small gestational sac in the uterus and the fetal pole, the initial sign of a developing embryo. During this first ultrasound, you’re likely to hear your baby’s heartbeat! Your doctor will also check if you’re expecting multiples, estimate the age, and confirm that your baby is developing correctly in the uterus.

Second Trimester (Weeks 13-26):

Weeks 18-20: Anatomy Scan If your pregnancy has been healthy up to this point, this will be your second ultrasound. You’ll see a clearer and more detailed image of your baby, and find out if you’re having a boy or a girl! Your doctor can assess several aspects of your baby’s growth at this stage, including size, and proper development of the brain and other organs, as well as heart rate, placenta development, amniotic fluid levels, and potential birth defects.

Third Trimester (Begins Week 27):

Your final ultrasound usually occurs around week 20, near the end of the second trimester. However, if there are concerns from previous scans, such as placenta health, low amniotic fluid levels, bleeding, and early contractions, your doctor may order additional ultrasounds to closely monitor your baby’s growth.

Our Additional Services

Abdominal Ultrasound Scan

Ultrasound for Liver, Kidney and Gynae

An abdomen ultrasound scan is crucial for assessing liver, kidney, and gynecological health. It provides detailed images of these organs, aiding in early detection of disorders and guiding timely treatment. This non-invasive, painless procedure is an essential tool in preventive healthcare, ensuring the well-being of internal organs with safe and effective imaging technology. Regular scans can significantly contribute to early diagnosis and better health management.

Frequently Asked Questions About Ultrasound for Pregnancy

1. Why is ultrasound important in pregnancy?

An ultrasound for pregnancy, also commonly known as ‘sonography,’ is a medical imaging technique used to create visual images of a developing fetus inside the uterus. It employs high-frequency sound waves to produce these images, allowing healthcare providers to monitor the baby’s development, assess its health, and detect potential issues. It’s a non-invasive, safe procedure commonly used throughout pregnancy for various diagnostic and screening purposes, such as confirming pregnancy, estimating due dates, examining fetal growth, and checking for multiple pregnancies. Ultrasounds also provide expectant parents with the first images of their baby, fostering early bonding.

2. What are the differences between 2D, 3D, and 4D ultrasounds in pregnancy?

2D ultrasound is the standard method offering flat, outlined images of the baby. 3D ultrasounds provide more detailed, life-like images, enhancing parental connection and aiding doctors in explaining any issues. 4D ultrasounds take it a step further by showing the baby’s real-time movements, like kicking or smiling, offering an even more realistic view. Each type offers unique benefits, with 3D and 4D providing clearer pictures for both parents and healthcare professionals.

3. Is an ultrasound scan different from other prenatal diagnostic exams?

Yes, ultrasound scans are different from other prenatal diagnostic exams. While ultrasounds use sound waves to create images of the fetus and are generally used for routine monitoring and basic assessment, other prenatal diagnostic tests, like amniocentesis or chorionic villus sampling (CVS), are more invasive and used for detailed genetic testing. These diagnostic tests provide different levels of information about the fetus’s health and development.

4. When is the best time of day to take a home pregnancy test for the most accurate results?

For the most accurate results, if you’ve missed your period, you can take a pregnancy test at any time of day since the hCG hormone will be high enough to detect. However, if testing before your period is due, it’s best to use the first urine in the morning when hCG levels are most concentrated. Also, avoid drinking lots of fluids before the test to prevent diluting the hormone, and use an “early test” designed for testing before a missed period.

5. Are ultrasound scans safe for me and my baby during pregnancy?

Yes, ultrasound scans are generally considered safe for both the mother and the baby during pregnancy. They use sound waves, not radiation, to create images of the fetus. The procedure is non-invasive and there’s no evidence to suggest that it causes any harm to the developing baby. Ultrasounds are a routine and important part of prenatal care, allowing healthcare providers to monitor the baby’s growth and development, and identify any potential health issues. As with any medical procedure, it’s always best to discuss any concerns with your healthcare provider.
