Ultrasound technology has become an integral part of the pregnancy journey and for us too here at Baby Glimpses. With several advancements over the years, ultrasound is currently the safest way to reveal the little details about a baby inside the womb. The technology has done no harm to the mother or the baby and is a reliable source in this field. Although 3D and 4D ultrasound scans are not standard prenatal tests, they are amongst the most sought after scans by the expecting couples.
Let us have a closer look at both 3D ultrasound and 4D ultrasound scans to differentiate between them.
Traditional ultrasound captured images in two dimensions and returned a black & white, grainy picture of the tiny one inside the womb. 3D ultrasound has been a step forward in this field, as it added another dimension to the 2D images. Despite not being a standard test for pregnancy, 3D ultrasound rose in popularity due to the clarity of images.
The colored ultrasound allows expecting parents to see the facial images of the baby and observe the body shape.
As the name suggests, 4D ultrasound adds the 4th dimension to the 3D ultrasound images. The 4th dimension i.e. time, allows parents to watch the baby’s movement in real-time. Despite being almost similar to the 3D, 4D ultrasound scan gets the nod when it comes to creating a video-like effect just like movies to watch babies yawn or smile.
At Baby Glimpses we have a variety of packages that include USB color photos + digital recordings of your session that you can keep as a treasure.
3D Ultrasound Vs 4D Ultrasound
There is no huge difference between the two scans except for the added dimension of time in the 4D ultrasound. Also, both have their own demand as it all comes down to the personal preferences of the expecting couples.
