Ever wonder what the difference is between 3D and 4D ultrasounds?

Let’s start at the beginning; during your ultrasound appointment the sonographer will find your baby in the traditional black and white, this is considered 2D. Once the baby is located, the sonographer then turns on the color and voila! You can see your baby move right in front of you, in living color – this is 4D. When your baby is in the right position the sonographer will take a still image. Although still in color, the lack of motion in the still image is what makes it 3D.

When Can Gender Be Determined?

It is a question  we get all the time from expecting parents who are deciding on what to paint the nursery – blue or pink?  So, when is the best time to determine the gender of a growing fetus?

At 12 weeks your baby is about the size of two pennies placed side by side.  To try and determine gender would involve examining an area the size of a pin head. A much more reliable age for gender determination is 16 weeks or more. By this time your baby is three times larger than at twelve weeks.

Why Do I Have To Fast Before An Ultrasound?

Fasting for at least 6 hours before an abdominal ultrasound is required because eating and drinking introduce air into the stomach and bowel. A period of fasting allows this air to dissipate which provides much clearer images of the organs in this area. Eating also causes the gallbladder to contract. This contracting motion of the gallbladder prevents accurate images from being obtained. Learn all about the Abdominal Ultrasound experience and how to prepare for one at our website
