3D/4D Fetal Ultrasound Scan
As you ease your way into the next nine months, you might want to consider having a keepsake of how your baby was growing in your womb. For expectant parents, being able to take a peek at those tiny hands and facial profile, or the thrill of knowing the baby’s gender are all part of the beauty of this delicate time. For decades, the field of obstetrics has utilized ultrasound technology for this purpose and more.
With the advances in technology, 3D and 4D scans are now widely available, and these are designed to provide a better view of your baby than traditional 2D ultrasound. Furthermore, innovative new applications of 3D/4D fetal ultrasound scans allows better visualization of congenital birth defects eg cleft lips to dynamic multiplanar views of the fetal heart. For a closer look at facial features, scanning at 30-32 weeks allows for better visualization of the face.
