Frequently Asked 4D Ultrasound Questions

What is the difference between 3D ultrasound and 4D ultrasound?
3D ultrasound is a still image while 4D untrasound adds the dimension of motion so it looks like a video.

What is your ultrasound facility like?
We pride ourselves on being an inviting, relaxing, comfortable, and spacious environment for you and your family.

Is 3D and 4D ultrasound safe for me and my baby?
3D and 4D ultrasound use the same frequency as your doctor uses in the normal 2D ultrasound. Ultrasounds have been used for over 35 years and there have been no proven side effects from its proper use. We strictly adhere to the FDA’s standards.

Do you accept insurance?
No, we do not accept insurance because this is an elective procedure.

When is the best time to have a 3d/4d ultrasound?
That depends on what you are looking to see. Many mothers like coming in twice, early on, 15-26 weeks, when they can see the baby as a whole, and then again at 25-34 weeks to see a more detailed face. Between 28 and 32 weeks, your baby develops more fat and gets a more defined face. After 34 weeks, it becomes more and more difficult to obtain good ultrasound pictures since the baby is running out of room. However all babies are different and we have been successful in obtaining great ultrasound images all the way up to 39 weeks.

How good are you at determining the gender of the baby?
At 16 weeks we can determine the gender with a very high accuracy. If you are over 15 weeks and the gender can not be seen, we invite you back for a weekday return ultrasound appointment and we will rescan you for free within the next 14 days. The need for a return visit is usually due to the baby’s position.

How can I be sure to get the best possible 3D/4D ultrasound pictures?
Most doctors recommend maintaining a healthy fluid intake, especially while you are pregnant. This will help to ensure your amniotic fluid is clear as well as full. There are many things out of the sonographer’s control like the baby’s position, the mother’s skin type and build, amount of amniotic fluid, etc.

What should I do prior to the 3D/4D ultrasound appointment?
Drink plenty of water even several days before your appointment to ensure your amniotic fluid is clear. About a half hour before your 3D/4D ultrasound scan, try to drink a fruit juice so that your baby will be awake during your session (unless you are told not to by your physician).

How long is the 3D/4D ultrasound session?
Depending on the ultrasound package that you select, your session will last between 10 and 25 minutes. However, plan on spending 30 minutes to an hour at our studio so that we can send you home with memories to last a life time. It is best to arrive a few minutes early to fill out our paperwork.

Are family and friends welcome to join?
Yes! We encourage you to bring your friends and family to share this special moment with you. Children are also welcome and we provide them with plenty of toys and books to keep the entertained. At our location our ultrasound room can comfortably seat 10 plus people, but more are welcome if they would like to stand and watch.

How can I pay for the 4D ultrasound?
We currently accept major credit/debit cards and cash.

When do I get my 3D/4D pictures and videos?
Less than 5 minutes after your ultrasound session has ended.

Will my doctor be contacted about the 3d/4d ultrasound?
We do not contact your doctor prior to the ultrasound scan since this is an elective procedure. We do require however that you currently are under prenatal care and if you have any concerns, you should ask your doctor. Ultrasound technicians in general cannot make a diagnosis.

Samantha and Charlie came in for a repeat scan. The first time their baby wasn't in the mood to show her/his (?) little face. They're choosing not to know the baby's gender until the birth day, but they sure are excited to meet their new family member. ...
