A 3D ultrasound scan provides a static life-like image of the baby, whereas a 4D scan is a real-time moving image (video) of the baby. Both scans take about 30 minutes, though it may take longer depending on the baby’s position and movement. These scans are not meant to replace the routine 2nd trimester screening scans for abnormalities.
This form of ultrasound has changed the way in which we can all view your developing baby. These 3D and 4D scans give our patients a sneak peek as to what their baby would potentially look like in addition to reassuring them that their baby is developing normally.
