Yes, these scans are obviously safe because the images generated through the ultrasound consist of portions of two dimensional images which are then converted into one single picture. It is not recommended by experts to have the 4D baby scans performed regularly as exposing the fetus to warm waves just for one picture is not at all justified. The 4D scans can take up to an hour to complete which is far greater timespan as compared to the allowed duration for the scan. Although there are no evidences proving the 4D scans to be unsafe, but it is recommended by the experts to minimize the time of scan and use the lowest intensity if possible.
