What's the difference between 2D, 3D and 4D Ultrasound?
Updated: May 3, 2021
For each, 2D, 3D, and 4D, the ultrasound safely uses sound waves and software to generate an image. We are able to see 3D and 4D images because of the way the software renders the information. Wow, technology is amazing!
2D is a simple 2 dimensional black and white image, where bone structure is most prominent. In this view we can see the heartbeat and the entire skeletal structure. 2D images of your baby resemble a sugar skull baby.
3D is a 3 dimensional representation of the image. This is where your baby looks much more like a squishy cherub. We can see the fatness of your baby's cheeks and the texture and fullness of your baby's lips (at 28-34 weeks).
4D is so much fun! 4D includes the fourth dimension which is movement! In this view, you baby appears similarly to the 3D image, but we can actually watch your baby yawn, pout, and suck on their thumb.
We look forward to seeing you and your baby soon. Schedule here and don't forget to enter your Promo Code from the last email!
