What is Ultrasound Imaging?

Ultrasound technology uses high frequency sound waves. The waves bounce off the tissue and return to the ultrasound machine at different frequencies, depending on the density of the tissue. Our ultrasound machine is a highly specialized FDA approved device that translates the returning sound waves into images for viewing.

What is the difference between 2D, 3D and 4D Imaging?

 2D ultrasounds are the traditional black & white ultrasounds. The pictures show the skeletal structure (outline) of the baby. You also see the baby moving with 2D technology. This is the type of ultrasound that was probably used for your diagnostic ultrasound. It is still the best technology for obtaining measurements and ensuring that the baby is developing as expected.

3D imaging shows the tissue (skin) of the baby. These are the images that look like pictures of your baby rather than pictures of your baby's skeleton. You can see the roundness of the baby's face, the shape of the nose and the contours of the lips. The color is computer generated to enhance the pictures and make them more appealing.

4D imaging is video where you see the baby moving with the clarity of the amazing 3D imaging. HD Live is just software to smooth out the picture and we have found the images are less detailed and more blurry. We stick with the best images - which are gained in the 4D capture.


Is it safe? Is there any risk to myself or baby?

Ultrasounds have been used and preformed for over 30 years. Many extensive studies over this time have shown that  ultrasounds are not known to cause any harm to mother or baby. Ultrasounds are a routine procedure that are used all over the country. 


When is the best time schedule my appointment?

At Anticipation Ultrasound Studio, we can perform ultrasounds at anytime throughout your pregnancy. However, the best time for a 3D/4D ultrasound is between 27-32 weeks. After 32  weeks we can still get good pictures but 

the baby starts to get crowded. Click the calendar on the

right to help determine the best time to schedule your

3D/4D Ultrasound appointment.


What type of training do you have?

All our imaging technicians have been specially trained to do prenatal ultrasound imaging. We use state-of-the-art ultrasound equipment specifically calibrated for O/B and fetal imaging. 


When will I receive the pictures, CD and DVD?

All your keepsake items will be ready for you to take home when you leave. The DVD is a video recording of your entire ultrasound session. We record the entire session so you don't miss anything your baby does and you can watch it again and again at home.


Will you be able to tell if the baby is a girl or boy?

Yes, and gender determination is included in all our packages. We prefer to check gender after the baby reaches 16 weeks. Gender determination cannot be guaranteed since we must rely on the cooperation of the baby and several other factors outside our control.


Do I need to have a full bladder?

No, a full bladder is not necessary. But, being well hydrated increases the transparency of the amniotic fluid which greatly effects the clarity of the images. If you want to maximize the likelihood of getting great pictures drink plenty of water for the 2 or 3 days before your appointment.


How many people can come with me to watch the session?

As many as you want. Our imaging rooms are large enough to accommodate several family members and friends. Bring everyone and anyone you want! We have multiple screens in each room.


Do I need an appointment?

Yes. Our sessions are by appointment only. You can schedule your appointent from this website or give us a call.


Do I need to bring a blank CD or DVD?

No, you do not need to bring anything. If you want your own music on the DVD please bring a CD of music to play during your ultrasound session.

 

We stand behind the idea that all of our clients should receive excellent 3D images of their baby. If we are unable to get good images because the baby is not cooperating, we will bring you back for a free redo session. Happy customers are our priority!
