3D & 4D Ultrasounds
Ultrasounds at Arrowhead Women’s Center
At Arrowhead Women’s Center, we provide our patients with a variety of technological options to view and evaluate each stage of pregnancy. Ultrasounds allow for parents and physicians to see a baby during points of each trimester.
Our Arrowhead Women’s Center offers both 3D and 4D ultrasounds for women during pregnancy. This technology allows for a mother to view her child for the first time, and to even further the maternal bond by being able to completely visualize her child. In addition, ultrasounds offer countless benefits including:
- Painless procedure that do not require needles, incisions, or injections.
- The procedure is safe with no ionizing radiation.
- Soft tissues can be seen clearly unlike with X-Rays.
Our 3D and 4D ultrasound technology allow for you to view your child in real-time, in real motion. This experience can be one of the most memorable and exciting moments of the pregnancy, and we are proud to offer such phenomenal technology to our patients.
A 3D ultrasound creates a three-dimensional image that allows both patient and physician to see the baby in more depth than with a two-dimensional image. The baby’s skin, limbs, and organs are visible and can be seen with a 3-D ultrasound. This technology complements the two-dimensional images, and can offer your Arrowhead Women’s Center physician more information about the health of your baby.
A 3D Ultrasound can also be used to better predict the sex of a baby. While two-dimensional technology has been more accurate than ever before, 3D imaging allows for additional angles and views to be taken into account for a better prediction of a child’s sex.
A 4D ultrasound is very similar to a 3D ultrasound, except for one key element—movement. With a 4D ultrasound, you have the ability to see the movement of an unborn baby and can view smiling, kicking, or even yawning.
This view gives expectant mothers an even closer look of her child, and can be a positive bonding experience for mothers and families with the new child.
