Being a first time mother, you may be anxious to see your little one growing in your belly for nine months long. You wait for each day and night to pass so that you can catch a glimpse of those small little fingers and toes. However, if you do not want to wait for nine months to meet the junior, 3D/4D ultrasound scan will help you see your unborn baby during your pregnancy.
What is the hype all about?
Finding it difficult to choose between 2D, 3D and 4D ultrasound scan? We will help to make the decision easier. In 2D ultrasound, a transducer is placed on the belly that sends sound waves through the body. The sound waves bounce off the fluids and internal organs, creating a two dimensional image of the fetus.
The latest 3D ultrasound test captures multiple two dimensional images of the fetus taken from different angles and combine the pieces together to form 3 Dimensional rendering. Therefore, instead of just seeing the profile view of the face you can easily see the whole surface.
The 4D ultrasound scan is similar but instead of static images, the images show movement. In other words, it can be said that you can see the baby’s movement in real time.
Why are ultrasound Performed?
Medical practitioners and pornographers use the ultrasound scan at regular intervals to examine the fetus, assess the amniotic fluids and to look for any kind of birth defect in the unborn baby. More detailed scans are normally used to examine any kind of fetal anomalies or to monitor a specific defect. While these scans do not make up for a part of regular prenatal exams, many practitioners do offer 3D picture of the fetus to the parents to be so that they can keep it as a souvenir.
With the birth of baby, everything changes for good. You get ample opportunities to click amazing pictures and create memories. Therefore, regular ultrasounds will help you check whether your baby is growing healthy or not.
