Here at Fetal Vision Imaging, we normally highlight how our 3D and 4D ultrasounds can help expecting families experience the joy of their new child before birth. We take great pride in providing a service unmatched in the industry that brings mothers and fathers closer together and forges a parental bond that lasts a lifetime.
With that in mind, we also like to discuss the technology behind our services. Ultrasounds have become more and more detailed in recent years due to various technological advancements. Here we will discuss some of the new trends in ultrasound technology and how they’re impacting the way parents are meeting their baby.
High Definition 3D/4D Ultrasound Imaging
Cutting edge technology available only from Fetal Vision Imaging is 2nd generation HD LIVE STUDIO! The images are incredibly detailed as it gives the appearance of shining multiple spotlights inside the womb, creating a more lifelike and accurate image of the child that would have never been thought possible with earlier generations of 3D/4D ultrasound technology.
This technology is only available with the GE Voluson E-10 ultrasound machine and Fetal Vision Imaging located in Levittown, PA, is the only 3D/4D Ultrasound facility in the entire Philadelphia Region to offer it!
Modern Ultrasound Imagery is More Detailed
In the past, ultrasound images were incredibly pixelated and difficult to see clearly. However, the era of fuzzy baby images is coming to an end thanks to advances in diagnostic imaging technology. The improved framerate, or the rate at which frames are displayed in videos, has allowed sonographers to develop images and videos with enhanced resolution. As a result, the more detailed ultrasound image quality means improved visual clarity when seeing your soon-to-be for the first time!
In addition to more detailed images, ultrasound imaging technology is also implementing new ways to visualize fetal images. For example, volumetric ultrasounds develop images with more visual volume instead of flat imagery, resulting in photos with significantly more depth. This advancement allows sonographers to detect minute details of your child more easily. Other developments enable ultrasound tech to assess fetal brains and hearts in more detail, which was previously difficult due to their small size.
Ultrasound Technology is Becoming More Efficient
The faster image processing isn’t just helping with accuracy but also making the ultrasound process more efficient. Many advances in ultrasound equipment have expedited the workflow for sonographers, allowing them to devote more time to their mothers and see more patients than they could previously. For instance, modern ultrasound machinery has less menu navigation and button pressing than older models, streamlining the process and saving time.
Convenience and Clarity With Contemporary Ultrasound Technology
Many advances in ultrasound technology contribute to convenience. Ultrasound machines have grown smaller over the years, making them more accessible and easy to move. However, larger machines still harbor more features than smaller models, meaning they aren’t going anywhere just yet.
Further, advances in ultrasound machinery have made them quieter than older machines, making the process more comfortable for mothers and sonographers alike. Some ultrasound systems have also implemented Wifi connectivity, allowing data to be transmitted wirelessly between multiple devices.
