3D Ultrasound

3-D Obstetrical Ultrasounds

3-D ultrasounds give an added advantage to routine ultrasounds by giving the ability to calculate the volume of the object/image being examined, hence creating images that can not traditionally be seen on a normal two-dimensional ultrasound.  In addition to giving you a beautiful image of your baby, 3-D ultrasounds may potentially also provide better visualization of fetal facial anomalies, neural tube defects, fetal tumors, and skeletal malformations. Despite these advantages, 3-D ultrasounds are not meant to replace the traditional two-dimensional ultrasound and are still only used as an adjunct to the traditional method.
