3D vs. 4D Ultrasound: Understanding the Differences

Since ultrasound was first invented, there have been tremendous advancements in the technology. Its use in medical treatment has never been more ubiquitous. In the area of fetal imaging in Strongsville, OH, ultrasound has been able to help make the joy of pregnancy even more profound. One of the most exciting ultrasound offerings at Peace of Mind Imaging is the choice of 3D or 4D ultrasound. Learn what the differences are, so you can make the best choice for you and your growing family!

3D Ultrasound

With 3D ultrasound, a detailed 3D image is available of your developing fetus. 3D encompasses length, width, and depth. So, instead of a flat image—similar to a photograph you’d hold in your hand—the 3D image looks more like your baby looks in real life. For example, you may be able to discern details like chubby cheeks, a rounded nose or chin, and pudgy toes. For many expectant mothers, a 3D ultrasound enhances the bonding experience and heightens the anticipation of being able to hold their young one in their arms in the coming months.

4D Ultrasound

While 3D ultrasounds account for length, width, and depth, 4D ultrasounds include time or movement. Imagine having a little camera in there with your baby, watching as they twitch their nose, adjust their position, stretch, or yawn. That’s what a 4D ultrasound at Peace of Mind Imaging offers. Attending family members and/or friends can watch as the little one sucks their thumb, wiggles their toes, or makes adorable expressions, all in real-time!

Remember, regular ultrasounds, 3D ultrasounds and 4D ultrasounds are non-invasive, painless and not harmful to mothers or their babies. We invite you to contact us to learn more about 3D and 4D ultrasounds in Strongsville, OH. Get in touch today!
