4D Ultrasound

Medical technology advancements are constantly revolutionizing how we understand and monitor pregnancies. An exciting example is the 4D ultrasound, an imaging technique that allows expectant parents to witness their unborn baby’s movements and features in stunning detail. At EstrogenicA, we’re leaders in medical innovation, and we’re proud to offer 4D ultrasound to all of our expectant mothers. We believe women should choose how they want to navigate their pregnancy journey with the guidance of an experienced EstrogenicA professional, down to the type of ultrasound they wish to get.

What is a 4D Ultrasound?

A 4D ultrasound is a medical imaging technique that gives expectant parents a more detailed and lifelike view of their unborn baby compared to traditional 2D ultrasounds. Unlike the static images produced by 2D ultrasounds, 4D ultrasounds capture the fetus’s movements as they happen, creating a video-like experience.
With a 4D ultrasound, expectant parents can witness their baby’s facial expressions and watch them suck their thumb or kick their legs. The procedure allows for a personal connection with the baby before birth and can help parents feel closer to their child.

EstrogenicA prioritizes utilizing innovative medical technologies to provide expecting mothers with an enhanced bonding experience and comprehensive prenatal care. We believe having choices in navigating one’s pregnancy journey is essential, including deciding the type of ultrasound they want to undergo.

How Does a 4D Ultrasound Work?

A 4D ultrasound uses sound waves to create moving images of a baby inside the womb. Like traditional 2D ultrasound, a transducer emits high-frequency sound waves into the body. These sound waves then bounce off the structures inside the womb and are captured by the transducer, which converts them into visual images. The transducer used during the ultrasound is the device rubbed on the mother’s belly.

What sets this apart is its ability to produce real-time moving images of the fetus. This technology creates incredibly detailed pictures and videos.

At EstrogenicA, we ensure our practitioners have undergone extensive training in performing ultrasounds so that expectant parents can enjoy this magical experience with confidence and peace of mind.

What Makes It Different from 2D and 3D?

The benefits of 4D ultrasound over traditional 2D and 3D ultrasounds are numerous. Firstly, this gives expectant parents a clearer view of their baby’s movements and features. Unlike its predecessors, which only offer static images or limited viewpoints, this type of ultrasound allows for real-time visualization in three dimensions, adding the element of time to the picture. This means parents can see their baby yawning, stretching, or even smiling in utero.

The additional dimension provided by the 4D ultrasound enhances diagnostic capabilities. Using this advanced imaging technique, EstrogenicA providers can better assess fetal growth and potential complications. The increased detail and depth perception offered by the 4D ultrasound allows medical professionals to make more informed decisions about prenatal care or interventions if necessary.
Choosing a 4D ultrasound creates an emotional bond before birth by allowing them to witness intimate moments and expressions that might have been missed with older imaging technologies. At EstrogenicA, we prioritize providing our patients with the technology to ensure a memorable pregnancy journey filled with joyous moments captured through techniques like the 4D ultrasound.

Making Informed Choices: Factors to Consider When Opting for a 4D Ultrasound.

There are several factors that expectant parents should take into account when considering an ultrasound. The timing of the ultrasound is crucial. While a 4D ultrasound can provide remarkable images and video footage of the baby, it’s typically recommended to wait until around 28 weeks gestation. Facial features have developed, and a baby’s movements will likely be more noticeable.

Another factor to consider is cost. This type of imaging technology tends to be more expensive than traditional ultrasounds, as it requires specialized equipment and expertise. It’s important to research different medical facilities or clinics to compare prices and find one that fits within the budget.

Additionally, some expectant parents may want to weigh the potential risks associated with having an elective ultrasound versus the benefits of seeing their baby in such detail. While these are generally considered safe when performed by trained professionals, discussing any concerns with an EstrogenicA healthcare provider is still vital before deciding.

Cost of a 4D Ultrasound

The cost falls between $100-$200. How long the scan is and additional services can affect the cost.

At EstrogenicA, we offer flexible pricing options to accommodate different budgets. Our experienced professionals will work closely with each patient to determine the best package for their requirements.
While prices may fluctuate, it is essential to consider that the cost of a 4D ultrasound provides an invaluable opportunity for parents-to-be to bond with their unborn baby in ways previously unimaginable. By witnessing their baby’s movements and features in stunning detail, expectant mothers can create lasting memories that will be cherished for years.

Frequently Asked Questions About 4D Ultrasound.

The best time to have a 4D ultrasound is usually between the gestational weeks of 26-30. During this time, the baby has developed enough fat under their skin to provide more transparent images and also has enough room in the uterus for better movement visualization. However, it’s important to note that every pregnancy is different, so it’s recommended to consult with an EstrogenicA healthcare provider, who can determine the most appropriate timing based on individual factors such as fetal position or maternal health conditions.
No known risks are associated with having a standard diagnostic ultrasound or a short session of 4D imaging performed by trained professionals. It uses sound waves at similar frequencies as traditional ultrasounds and does not involve radiation like other imaging techniques such as X-rays. However, excessive exposure should be avoided as per recommendations from medical experts.
