4D SCAN TECHNOLOGY

3D / 4D Pregnancy Ultrasounds are performed any time from 12 weeks. 

The timing depends on what stage of development parents would like to view their baby.

There is no “best time” to do a scan.

Different scans at different stages will display 4D images at that particular stage.

It is “best” to start 3D/4D scans earlier when there is enough space to work around the region of interest and the foetus is less likely to hide.

Follow-up scans can then be done at later stages to view more advanced stages of development.

Preparation

Like all ultrasounds, the clarity of the images obtained is dependent on certain technical factors:

1. The baby’s position
2. The amount of fluid surrounding the baby
3. The position of the placenta
4. The mother’s weight


As a guideline, it is always better to start 4D Scans in earlier stages where optimal images are easier to achieve.

Follow up scans later in 4D will display remarkable changes in development.

Expectations

Early ultrasound pregnancy scans demonstrates “full body” foetal views with detailed bony anatomy and movement.

As your pregnancies progresses, images may display separate views of the face, legs, arms, gender and babies are often seen yawning, blinking, waving and swallowing.
3rd Trimester 4D Scans display a striking resemblance to the baby at birth.

If the baby chooses to hide many techniques may be performed to try and change position.
4D Scans are done in conjunction with 2D Scan. Images are obtained from constantly changing between 2D and 4D mode.
