An ultrasound scan is a medical test that uses high-frequency sound waves to capture live images from the inside of your body. It’s also known as sonography.
What is 3D & 4D ultrasound?
3D scans show still pictures of your baby or internal body organs in three dimensions. 4D scans show moving 3D images of your internal organs or baby, with time being the fourth dimension.
How do I prepare for an ultrasound?
Preparation for the procedure will depend on the type of examination you will have. For some scans your doctor may instruct you not to eat or drink for as many as 12 hours before your appointment. For others you may be asked to drink up to six glasses of water two hours prior to your exam and avoid urinating so that your bladder is full when the scan begins.
