How does 3D/4D and HD ultrasound work?
Diagnostic ultrasounds use sound wave technology to see an image of your baby. Using the same technology, the ultrasound machine comprises 3 sides to create the 3D image. 4D is also known as real time technology - meaning you can see your baby moving in real time. HD technology uses a computerized virtual light that can make your baby's pictures even clearer.
When is a good time to get a Gender Ultrasound?
Gender ultrasounds are performed as early as 14 weeks. We guarantee your baby's gender at 16 weeks. Should you come before 16 weeks, and we are even a 1/2% questionable, it is only $15 to come back for the confirmation. The gender ultrasound is primarily black and white. We do however perform the 3D/4D/HD Live if baby is in a good position. At this gestation, babies are still the size of your hand, so the clarity of the 3D/4D/HD ultrasound depends on baby's position.
When is a good time to get a 3D/4D Ultrasound?
We perform 3D/4D and HD with every ultrasound we offer. When the babies are small, the 3D/4D picture quality is dependent on the baby's position. To see your baby's features, it is best to wait until 27 weeks or later. Picture quality is affected by baby position, placenta location, clarity of the amniotic fluid, and mommy's figure. For our fuller figured mommies, pictures are better around 30 weeks or later gestation.
What does my ultrasound include?
All of our ultrasounds are HD and includes a Picture CD. The Picture CD includes 30-80 images (black and white/3D) depending on how well your baby scans. Should we not get any images of your baby's face, due to the baby facing the spine, we repeat the ultrasound for free, one time. We do not guarantee that we will get full face pictures of your baby, many times, the baby is hugged up against the placenta or side of mommy. Repeating the ultrasound is at the discretion of the owner, not the parents. We understand everyone wants that perfect picture, and we will make every attempt during your session to capture it.... that is why we offer you to come back for just $39 throughout the rest of your pregnancy - so you may see your baby in different stages of growth. This is offered by no other facility in Florida!
