About 4D Ultrasound Scans

It is very common these days for expecting parents to have 4D ultrasound scans or bonding scans as otherwise known. 3D/4D ultrasound is an ultrasound scanning technique, often used during pregnancy providing 3D/4D images of the baby.

There are several different ultrasound scanning techniques in pregnancyultrasound. The standard common diagnostic scan is the 2D ultrasound scan. In 3D baby scanning, however, instead of the sound being sent straight down and reflected back, it is sent at different angles. The returning echoes are processed by a powerfull computer program resulting in a 3D volume image of the baby's surface and/or internal organs.

Clinical use of this technology is an area of intense research activity especially in fetal anomaly scanning but there are also popular uses that have been shown to improve fetal-maternal bonding. 4D baby ultrasound scans are similar to 3D scans, with the difference associated with time.

So 4D ultrasound scans are essentially 2D ultrasound scans and the scanner puts the 2D information together to create a 4D image of the baby.

The ideal time to have a 3D/4D ultrasound scan is between 26 and 30 weeks of pregnancy as the baby sking is better devoloped to see the face.

 

This 4D ultrasound scan includes:

  • 4D DVD
  • 5x b/w 3D images in mounted frame
  • CD with 6x colour 3D images
  • 1x (4×6) colour 3D image
  • 1 colour 3D keyring
  • Growth report, includes estimated weight of baby at current gestation
  • Wellbeing assessment includes position of baby and placental position
  • Complimentary gender confirmed if requested
  • 30 minute appointment

Preparation

 No preparation for this scan is neccesary but we reommend that during the week before your 4D scan, you drink  a couple of extra glasses of water each day. This will help you to be hydrated, and assures that there is sufficient amniotic fluid around your baby which helps with the 4D scan. A full bladder is not required.

From experiences we know that sometimes chocolates, sweets, fresh orange or even fizzy drinks can help when trying to stimulate your baby to move, so feel free to bring some along to your appointment in case the baby is having a nap. Caffeine is not recommend before your 4D scan.

When you arrive have a little walk around, this might help wake your baby up before for the scan.

 

The Pregnancy Ultrasound Scan

Pregnancy or baby ultrasound scans are very common part of prenatal care. This is because ultrasound scans are completely painless, have no known side effects on mothers or babies, and can be carried out at any stage of pregnancy: in early pregnancy, ultrasound is being used to confirm the baby's heartbeat and exclude any early stage abnormalities; later in pregnancy ultrasound is being used to evaluate the baby's oveall health. 

About Ultrasound

Diagnostic Medical ultrasound scan or medical sonography as otherwise known is a painless imaging technique utilising sound waves to produce internal images of the body.
It is called ultrasound as the sound frequency being used is at the region of 1 to 20MHz. The human ear cant can’t hear these frequencies.
The sound waves are produced by the transducer or the probe as most commonly known. As they travel through the body they bounce back to the transducer due to various differences in tissues. The returning echoes are picked up by the probe and a powerful computer analyses the echoes and creates the image on the screen.
There are various kinds of ultrasound scans that can be performed and each looks at different organs of the body such as tendons, muscles, joints, blood vessels, liver, kidneys, uterus and ovaries to confirm or exclude possible pathology.
Unlike Ct and MRI, ultrasound does not use radiation and therefore is pregnancy friendly. It is also live and is ideal for musculo-skeletal exams to evaluate moving joints.

What is a difference between sonography and ultrasound?

The word Sonography is made up of sono and graphy. Sono comes from the Latin Sonos which means sound and graphy from the Greek word grafei which means writing. So writing [drawing] images using sound and in our case ultrasound. Today it is more common to hear the expression of medical ultrasound than medical sonography in the UK.

 

What is an ultrasound scan? 

Ultrasound imaging is a medical diagnostic technique where sound waves are being used to image various parts of the body.
Other terms for ultrasound imaging that are being used are sonograms, US and sonography.
Ultrasound is widely used these days as it is painless and safe for adults, children and foetuses. There are no side effects such as the ones associated with ionising radiation produced by CT and plain x-rays.
During the ultrasound scan, the sonographer rests a small probe over the skin. This probe produces sound waves i.e. pulsations that travel through your skin and inside your body. Part of the sound waves are being reflected back to the transducer and the computer analyses the returning echoes and produces the image on the screen. Medical ultrasonography uses the same principle as the sonar that the navy uses to detect submarines.
Ultrasound is being used to image mostly solid soft organs such as liver, kidneys, uterus and ovaries, muscles and blood vessels and babies in the womb. It has, however, limited value in organs such lungs, bone, stomach and bowel/colon.
Ultrasound images are black and white but colour Doppler is being used to evaluate organ blood flow and blood vessels and this is what the red and blue colours on the screen are.
