Non-Diagnostic Ultrasound Information

UltrasoundIf you just cannot wait to see and hear your precious bundle again until your next medical ultrasound appointment, then these ultrasounds are for you! We offer the latest in technology to bring you the most beautiful images in 2D, 3D, and 4D ultrasound. Every session is performed by an ultrasound technician who is registered by the American Registry for Diagnostic Medical Sonography (ARDMS). These ultrasounds will only be scheduled for pregnant women who are under the care of a medical provider.

What is the difference between 3D, 4D, and HD ultrasound?

3D is a still image while 4D adds the dimension of real-time so it looks like a video. HD, Hi-definition, ultrasounds add an extra dimension of light to give you an even more life-like image of your baby. All of our 3D/4D packages are performed in HD. We do not charge extra for this service.

When is the best time to have a HD 3D/4D ultrasound?

If you would like to see the baby’s whole body, then you should schedule your ultrasound at 14-26 weeks. The best time to view the baby’s face is between 27 and 32 weeks as your baby develops more fat and the face becomes more defined. After 32 weeks and beyond, it becomes increasingly difficult to obtain good pictures since the baby is running out of space in the womb- arms and legs end up blocking baby’s face as a result.

How can I be sure to get the best possible HD 3D/4D pictures?

Most doctors recommend maintaining a healthy fluid intake (8-10 glasses per day), especially while you are pregnant. Drinking the doctor-recommended water daily during the week before your appointment will help to ensure that your amniotic fluid is clear as well as full. There are many things out of the sonographer’s control like the baby’s position, the mother’s skin type and build, amount of amniotic fluid, etc.

Are family and friends welcome to join?

Yes! We encourage you to bring your friends and family to share this special moment with you.

How can I pay for the ultrasound?

These are elective ultrasounds that do not replace diagnostic ultrasounds ordered by your medical provider. Therefore, these ultrasounds cannot be filed to your insurance. Military patients please present your military ID for a 10% discount. We accept major credit/debit cards in-office or over the phone and cash. A 50% non-refundable deposit is due at the time of scheduling, and the remaining balance is due when you check in for your scheduled appointment. No shows will forfeit the paid deposit and will be required to pay a new deposit to schedule another appointment.
