3D Ultrasound / 4D Ultrasound in PA Ultrasound

How 3D ultrasound / 4D ultrasound Changes the Face of Ultrasound

Read how 3D ultrasound / 4D ultrasound technology at our PA ultrasound center changes the face of traditional 2D ultrasound!

PA ultrasound facilities like Fetal Vision Imaging outside Philadelphia, PA give expectant parents an extraordinary look at their unborn baby in the womb. While traditional 2D ultrasound imaging has been used safely for more than 25 years, advances in ultrasound technology have brought an entirely new experience to the ultrasound table.

Our PA ultrasound center, which is conveniently located near Philadelphia, PA, offers the incredible experience of 3D ultrasound and 4D ultrasound in a safe, comfortable and relaxing environment. With a proven track record of providing expectant parents in PA and NJ with wonderful ultrasound experiences, we’re certain that you’ll cherish your time with us as well.

PA Ultrasound Insight – Traditional 2D Scanning

With conventional 2D scanning, the body is scanned using a probe over the surface of the abdominal area. Using sound waves, an image is received and displayed in many different layers, or slices. What you see when viewing your ultrasound on the screen is one particular slice as it can only render one layer at a time.


Traditional 2D Ultrasound Image

The above ultrasound image is probably the kind of image you are used to seeing when someone mentions having an ultrasound performed while pregnant. While you can see the outline of the baby’s head and body, everything else is pretty much left to your imagination.

PA Ultrasound Insight – 3D Ultrasound Scanning

With a 3D ultrasound / 4D ultrasound, the entire process is quite similar to a 2D scan only the end result is far more exciting and telling. Like with a 2D scan, a probe is swept across the mother’s abdomen and the computer takes these same layers or slices and renders them into life-like 3D images. As you can see below, the difference between the two technologies is night and day.

PA Ultrasound Insight – 4D Ultrasound Scanning

While a 3D ultrasound image is incredible enough, the advent of 4D ultrasound technology has brought the miracle of your unborn baby to an entirely new level. With 4D ultrasound, the computer takes the same multiple images it harvests during a 3D scan and renders them simultaneously on the computer screen to simulate movement.

If your baby moves its arms, you’ll see it in live motion. If he or she smiles, flexes his or her little fingers, or yawns, you’ll see it in real-time. Best of all, when you choose Fetal Vision Imaging as your PA ultrasound center, we can even record the entire ultrasound session so that you can watch your little one on DVD over and over again. And probably all over again!

This is the place to go! My husband and I are expecting our first child.We had a previous doctors appointment and was told they could not hear the heartbeat or see the baby at 12 weeks. We both felt anxious knowing what this could possibly mean. We found this place and were very fortunate that they had an opening this morning. The staff member greeted us very kindly and the facility made you feel relax and at ease. When we went in and spoke with John he was very knowledgeable and gave good advice and tips about pregnancy and ultrasounds. We were very pleased with the results seeing the baby kick, hear its heartbeat and knowing the baby is there! I would recommend this facility, you won't be disappointed. Just follow and listen to what John says about how to get the best ultra sound results!! Thank you both again 🙂

I’ve been to Fetal Vision with all 3 pregnancies and each time, I leave extremely satisfied! Being able to get that first glimpse of your baby is an experience I would recommend to any pregnant woman. Fetal Vision allows pregnant moms and their families and friends to feel such a different type of connection to the new baby coming into their lives. The photos captured are second to none- clear, accurate, and excellent quality.

Absolutely the best experience! Definitely recommend! At first my baby did not want to cooperate but they did everything in their power to get me the best pictures possible! The environment is very homey and comfortable! My family loved being able to watch and enjoy the ultrasound with me. He answered all of our questions and was able show us our baby perfectly. He took his time, was very personable and made sure I was at ease and enjoying my experience. I will definitely be sending all of my friends and family here!

Today we came in for the third time. This is our second baby that we’ve taken here and the images are insanely good. Our second visit he suggested drinking more water and coming back for better images and he was totally right. He barely charged us anything to come back in the 3rd time for better images. I highly recommend coming here over competitors. And drink lots of water! You’ll get the best pictures that way.

We have been here several times and always have a great experience. 15 week gender determinations were correct and so was the sneak peek blood test! Great images each time.

My husband and I had a wonderful experience at Fetal Vision Imaging. John made us feel comfortable and made the whole experience fun. He spent extra time with us to try and get the best pics possible (anterior placenta town!). The images were fantastic, staff was friendly and facility was clean and comfortable. Highly recommend.

What a great experience. I wasn’t sure what to expect but being able to see my growing baby made me much happier than I thought it would. Be sure to drink a lot of water!!! The staff and facility are amazing. Very comfortable and comforting all the way round. I totally recommend Fetal Vision Imaging and will be back for sure when our next kid is growing. The HD is the best. A lot of detail!!!

This is our 3rd time back at Fetal vision and it only gets better with time! They corrected our gender during the first visit and knew we would never turn back from going somewhere else! It pays off to listen and drink the water because it pays off in the end. I recommend all my family and friends here. The atmosphere is so welcoming and great

I LOVED both of my visits here!!! Highly recommended to anyone who is excited and can’t wait to see their little one. The office staff is amazing and John the tech is super personable and makes it so comfortable. The scan room way more like a spa or a really nice living room than a medical facility. There are huge comfy couches for Dad, and a giant TV screen to see the baby on. Every time I go I leave feeling so excited. 3D is totally worth it and my pictures are amazing for only 17 weeks. Cant say enough great things. A gift card for a 3D scan would make such an awesome gift.

Amazing service! Took us in last minute and spent over our allotted time to make sure we were satisfied with the results. Staff was extremely knowledgeable and able to answer all of our question. Very friendly staff and would happily recommend their business to anyone! Also, they are EAGLES fans!!! Which is always a plus!

Had an HD ultrasound and the product was amazing. They took the time needed to get my little girl to reposition and get her hands and feet out of the way of her face. They were family friendly and very knowledgeable. Definitely pictures that we will cherish forever. Would definitely return for any future pregnancies. Highly recommend fetal vision imaging.

Super great experience! John went out of his way to explain everything to us throughout the entire ultrasound. The baby wasn’t being super cooperative in the beginning but he took the time to make sure we came out with amazing pictures. I highly recommend and will definitely be back with future pregnancies. Hands down best in the area!

What a beautiful experience from start to finish. This was definitely the best choice for us to have our keepsake ultrasound experience. Denise at the front desk was very professional and welcoming. John, the technician was great as well. Looking forward to our return visit in 5 weeks.

Awesome experience. My boyfriend and I came here for our gender reveal at 15 weeks and then again at 28 weeks. Everyone was so friendly and very professional. Would highly recommend to expecting parents.

I had such a great experience here yesterday! I will definitely be returning later in my pregnancy! John really worked with me to find out the gender and get good pictures. We found out and couldn't be happier. He also educated me on how important it is to drink more then enough water! You can definitely tell he loves and takes pride in what he does! I cant wait to go back for 28week ultrasound!!

This place is wonderful!! My baby was not cooperating at all during the ultrasound, as he had both hands, feet, and cord in front of his face. However, John took a full hour and tried everything he could to help get the best pictures. He was very calm, patient, and encouraging. We tried everything and wound up getting some wonderful pictures!! I HIGHLY recommend!!

This was an experience I will never forget. I was able to bring my entire family to see my son. Everyone at fetal imaging was very welcoming and made my family and I so comfortable. Thank you so much Fetal Imaging! ❤️

I really appreciate the professional knowledge of John. My baby was not cooperating and here it turned out that neither was I. I wasn't drinking enough water. John explained the importance of how the baby needs the fluid to move around. I rescheduled and returned a week later after drinking the recommended fluids every day. The baby had moved and he was able to get the best pictures I could ask for. Thank you so very much John and Sherry for this amazing experience. Love, Tori Frazer
