3D/4D/5D (HD Live) Scan: 18-34 Weeks

The primary purpose of the 3D/4D/5D scan is to perform well-being and growth observational checks on your child’s growth and development. This scan routinely aids in recognizing the relationship of your unborn baby and you by displaying her/his face, hands, feet…

The Phoenix ultrasound 3D, 4D, and 5D scans are available after 13 weeks but optimally between 18 and 34 weeks gestation. This scan combines 3D/4D/5D imaging with well-being observations of your unborn baby. During the scan, your fully qualified obstetric Sonographer will observe the baby’s heartbeatmovement, placental siteamniotic fluid volume, and position, which will be documented in the form of an assessment report and will provide essential information to share with your midwife .

Please keep in mind that the major goal of this scan is to obtain an important diagnostic evaluation of your unborn baby, during which we will employ advanced 3D/4D/5D(HD Live) imaging software to show views of the baby from different angles.

Your baby’s position can sometimes make it difficult to obtain clear 3D/4D/5D images. If this is the case, our sonographer may advise you to go for a short stroll to induce movement; if this does not work, we will gladly provide you a complimentary re-scan at a later time or date. If in the sonographer’s professional opinion, further scanning is unlikely to achieve the desired 3d/4D/5D imagery, we will upgrade your
scan to the Wellbeing and Growth Scan, Including, colour Doppler assessment of fetomaternal hemodynamics .


What is a 4D baby scan, and what distinguishes it from other ultrasound technologies?

A 4D baby scan is an advanced ultrasound imaging technique that provides a dynamic, three-dimensional view of the developing fetus in real-time. Unlike traditional 2D ultrasounds, 4D ultrasounds capture detailed, moving images, offering a more comprehensive and lifelike representation of the unborn child.

When is the optimal timeframe for a 4D baby scan?

The ideal period for a 4D baby scan is typically between 22 to 32 weeks of gestation. During this window, the developing fetus has well-defined features, and there is sufficient amniotic fluid for clear visualization.

How does a 4D baby scan differ from a 3D ultrasound?

While a 3D ultrasound provides a static, three-dimensional image, a 4D ultrasound introduces the fourth dimension of time, allowing for real-time visualization of fetal movements. This enhancement provides a more detailed and dynamic perspective.

: Is a 4D baby scan considered safe?

Yes, 4D baby scans are considered safe. The technology utilizes ultrasound waves, similar to conventional 2D and 3D ultrasounds, and has been employed in prenatal care for an extended period. However, it is imperative that qualified healthcare professionals conduct the scan.

: What motivates individuals to opt for a 4D baby scan?

Expectant individuals often choose 4D baby scans for emotional bonding and a more intimate connection with the unborn child. The scan allows for the visualization of facial features, expressions, and movements, enhancing the overall prenatal experience.

Can the 4D baby scan determine the gender of the baby?

Yes, a 4D baby scan can be employed to determine the gender of the baby if desired. However, it is important to acknowledge that not all expectant parents may wish to obtain this information, and preferences should be discussed with the healthcare provider.

What is the typical duration of a 4D baby scan?

The duration of a 4D baby scan varies but generally ranges from 15 to 20 minutes. Factors such as fetal position and imaging clarity can influence the exact timeframe required.

Can a 4D baby scan detect abnormalities?

While 4D scans offer detailed images, their primary purpose is for bonding and visualizing fetal movements. For the comprehensive assessment of potential abnormalities, additional diagnostic tests such as a detailed fetal anatomy scan (20-week scan) may be recommended.

Are there specific preparatory measures for a 4D baby scan?

In general, no specific preparation is required for a 4D baby scan. However, maintaining proper hydration in the days leading up to the scan is advisable to ensure optimal amniotic fluid levels, contributing to improved imaging quality.

What is 5D or Hd live ultrasound scan

5D or HD Live ultrasound scans in pregnancy refer to advanced imaging technologies that go beyond traditional two-dimensional ultrasounds. These scans provide high-quality three-dimensional (3D) and four-dimensional (4D) images of the fetus, capturing detailed facial features and movements in real-time. The terms "5D" and "HD Live" are often used to describe enhancements in image quality, offering a more realistic and immersive viewing experience for expectant parents. While these scans are primarily used for non-diagnostic purposes, they provide a unique opportunity for parents to see their baby in remarkable detail, including facial expressions and movements, fostering a deeper emotional connection during the prenatal period. It's important to note that these advanced scans are supplemental to, not a replacement for, the routine diagnostic ultrasounds performed by healthcare professionals during prenatal care.
