Three- and four-dimensional ultrasounds use sound waves to create images of organs inside your body or pictures of a developing baby inside your womb. The staff at Alpha OB/GYN complete ultrasounds by placing a state-of-the-art device on the outside or inside of your body, depending on which images are needed.
Ultrasound procedures are safe and noninvasive. Although 3D ultrasounds create three-dimensional images, 4D ultrasounds produce live video effects that include much more detail than traditional ultrasounds. During a fetal ultrasound, you can see the shape of your developing baby and watch him move around.
Your provider uses 3D or 4D ultrasounds for a variety of gynecological and obstetrics conditions. Ultrasounds come in handy when you or your provider want to:
After your ultrasound, Dr. Reddy lets you know if she spots any alarming OB/GYN medical conditions or if you require further treatment.
When you arrive at Alpha OBGYN for an ultrasound, a technician greets you, lets you know what to expect, and answers any questions you may have. Your provider must have access to your skin near the area requiring an ultrasound.
She applies a special gel to the area and slowly moves a device along your skin to create 3D or 4D ultrasound images. You won’t feel pain during the procedure, which usually lasts a short time. There are no known risks from receiving 3D or 4D ultrasounds.
Your medical history, symptoms, physical examination, and pregnancy status determine if you require a 3D or 4D ultrasound. Even if an ultrasound isn’t medically necessary, you might request one to view your baby before it’s born.
Whether you require an ultrasound for medical reasons or you want to see what your unborn baby looks like, call Alpha OBGYN to schedule an appointment, or use the online booking tool today.
