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!
