What are 3D and 4D ultrasounds?
3D and 4D ultrasound are ways of viewing a developing baby in the womb. Ultrasound is a noninvasive test that creates images with sound waves. 3D ultrasound only takes outer images and 4D ultrasound adds the element of motion. Such images provide information about fetal health and development while providing parents and loved ones with a first glimpse of their new family member.
