While pregnant with our first child, we were as anxious as anyone would be to meet him. We heard about elective ultrasounds and wanted to have one done so that we could see what the hype was all about. After realizing that there was not anywhere to have this ultrasound done locally, we traveled outside the country to have it done.
Our experience was not only memorable but it was so inspirational that we have decided to open Sneak Peeks so that more growing families can experience the same joy we did. We also decided to take it one step further and provide High Definition technology so that customers can receive the absolute best experience. Our family owned and operated HD elective ultrasound service is the only one in the state.
We value each and every customer and their individual needs. If you have any questions or would like us to prepare a custom package deal for you, please do not hesitate to give us a call.

Elective 3D ultrasound scans have always been one of the highlights of each of my four pregnancies.
Sometimes being pregnant can feel like such a surreal, “out of body” experience that it can be quite hard to wrap our heads around.
Sure we likely have a myriad of pregnancy “symptoms”, some welcomed and some not so much, but in today’s visual, fast paced world, we can feel so out of touch with what is actually happening inside our bodies.
These scans help bring that miracle to more of a reality. Being able to see your baby grow, move, play, smile, and even do something as simple as hiccup is a bonding experience that I feel no mother should miss out on!
This is why I wanted to open a studio of my own up here in my hometown in Northern Michigan.
Family is important! We ALWAYS invite you to bring your loved ones with you!
Let me start by saying, the refurbished GE Voluson e8 is an incredible ultrasound machine. It is the one of the few elite 4D obstetric ultrasound machines for women’s health on the market. GE set the bar high with the E8.
HDLive is a new aspect of ultrasound that few other companies have crossed into. HDLive is unique and a neat new way to look at ultrasounds. You will ask yourself if you are looking at a rendered 4D image or a real picture when you first see it.
HDLive shines a new light on an otherwise aging 4D technology. HDLive focuses on two major components. The first component is an improved speckle reduction algorithm for use during 4D mode: VSRI, or Volume Speckle Reduction Imaging. GE has optimized speckle reduction for 4D and made it adjustable in 4D mode. With speckle reduction, the image can greatly be improved or make the image look like a wrinkled piece of paper. If used properly, it is another step towards getting a cleaner more crisp image rather then a distorted image.
The second component is “virtual light source” which doesn’t explain much to anyone who reads that. Basically HDLive is the equivalent of taking a flashlight and shinning it on a face from different angles to light up the face and seeing the different shadows the light creates, casting shadows on the face giving depth and creating new dimensions. The end results is an image that looks almost lifelike.
E8 MACHINE REVIEW
Since the late 1990’s, the GE Voluson ultrasound machines have been known as the industry standard in the premium 4D market. Not a whole lot has changed between the first series of machines and the current machines available now. That has since changed with the introduction of HDLive to the ultrasound market.
Since the late 1990’s, 4D imagery hasn’t really seen too many changes in terms of 4D. Every few years there would be upgrades to image quality and higher frame rates but aside from those minor changes, the systems did the same things as before the minor upgrades with hardly noticeable results. That has all changed now that HDLive has been introduced to the market with a much needed upgrade in terms of imagery and basic use.
Another improvement over the 730 is the image management. Previous models have had a not so user-friendly image management program. With the new E8 with HDLive, that all changes and greatly improves. It even gives you the option to export to “Mac” or “PC” image formats (AVI and MOV). Not only that but every piece of image management is easier to use and more user-friendly.
The E8 with HDLive is, for these reasons listed above, one of the best Ultrasound machines on the market today.
When it comes to “franchising” 4D elective ultrasound studios you have multiple options. The biggest options/issues are how much do I have to spend to franchise, can I make my own business choices, and how much will the on-going fees be?
At Ultrasound Trainers, we find it really hard to offer a product that may or may not work and charge big fees for them. For this exact reason, Ultrasound Trainers is not the leader in 3D/4D Ultrasound Franchises rather we are the leader in elective ultrasound complete turn-key businesses.
We believe that the money you earn as a business owner should be kept by YOU the business owner. We also realize that the 3D/4D ultrasound industry and studios alone will never be major brands like Mc Donalds and so on, so why should owners have to pay franchise fees like these major companies.
With our elective ultrasound turn-key business packages we give you the flexibility to customize your entire business to your wants and needs. Wouldn’t you prefer the option to customize all the different aspects of your dream ultrasound business? From the logo & website all the way down to the actual equipment, you will get to choose what will fit your business the best.
We provide all the trainings related to how to operate the machine and run your business. Our company does all of the initial setup for you. Your primary task is to secure a location and furnish it. After that you can sit back while we complete the rest for you. We create a custom logo, website, print marketing, social media marketing and get your organization running in no time. The turn-key package will include your marketing, supplies, equipment (TV/projector, computers, cables), ultrasound & business training, as well as your ultrasound machine. Every turnkey that we open is customized based on the tastes and style of the owner. With us your business will never have to pay royalties or any franchise fees. After we complete your setup, you will have complete control over your new business. Our support doesn’t end when we leave, we will support you for the life of your business with any business, marketing, or ultrasound questions.
If you would like to learn more information about our alternative to the typical 3D/4D Ultrasound Franchise model please contact one us and we can discuss the differences.

As pregnancy progresses, you become more in love with the little life growing inside of you. The anticipation and joy that you feel grows with your beautiful baby bump. But, as much as you love your baby and the bump that grows as it does, carrying around another human being also comes with some challenges.
Those challenges are often physical – aching feet, sore backs, lost sleep. Relieving some of these side effects of the bump can be achieved with prenatal message. And, the benefits of prenatal massage do not end with relief of physical discomfort. It is also great for your emotional well-being too.
Prenatal massage, is in many ways, just like a regular massage. There are slight adjustments to technique and areas of focus, but if you have had a regular massage, you should have a good idea of what to expect. One big difference that your body and your bump will appreciate? The tables for prenatal massage are often altered to accommodate a pregnant woman’s belly.
There are a few important things to look for when searching for a prenatal massage provider:
The answers are important because just because a masseuse offers prenatal massage does not necessarily mean they have experience performing them. Choosing someone with extensive experience will help make sure the experience is pleasurable and beneficial. Choosing a practice that exclusively performs prenatal massage is ideal.
Massages, whether pregnant or not, are great for relieving muscle aches and pains and migraines. They are particularly effective at addressing back, neck and abdominal pain, which are common issues that arise during pregnancy from the strain that the bump puts on your body.
Additional benefits of prenatal massage include:
Still not convinced that prenatal massage is right for you? According to the American Pregnancy Association, modern research shows that it can be an important ingredient in a pregnant woman’s care and should be evaluated as an option for managing your pregnancy.
Although prenatal massage has several benefits, there are some women who may not be good candidates for a prenatal massage. If you have pregnancy complications that include high risk pregnancy, previous pre-term labor, gestational diabetes, preeclampsia, high blood pressure or abdominal pain, consult your doctor prior to scheduling a prenatal massage. There may be modifications that can be performed so that you can still enjoy the benefits of massage.
The common issues that arise from pregnancy can all be addressed with regular prenatal massages. Eliminating or reducing the impact of these issues on your pregnancy allows you to focus on the beauty of creating and nurturing a new life. And, they are also a great way to focus on yourself. Soon, your beautiful bump will be a beautiful baby who demands all of your time and attention. While this will be an enjoyable, joyous time for you, time for self will become much harder to find. During your pregnancy, the more you focus on keeping yourself healthy and well-rested, the better prepared you will be to care for your baby.
Show your bump the love and caring that it so rightfully deserves!
Ultrasound Trainers has been the global leader in 3D/4D elective keepsake ultrasound training since 2005. We have perfected the art of teaching how to perform 4D ultrasounds and have simplified the process to allow virtually anyone the ability to obtain elective ultrasound images. Elective 4D ultrasounds are a separate “beast” when it comes to ultrasounds. Performing 3D/4D ultrasounds is vastly different than the typical 2D ultrasounds that are taught at schools around the world. In order to perform 3D/4D elective ultrasounds one not only has to view the ultrasound “backwards or shifted” but have the appreciation and want to please the pregnant mother and family.
Unlike diagnostic ultrasound, elective keepsake ultrasounds are typically performed for the pleasure of the parents and family. The goal with elective babyface ultrasounds is to give great images while being friendly and making the family feel that they are part of the experience. If you are coming from a diagnostic background; often the hardest part of the transition into 3D/4D ultrasounds is allowing yourself to open up, talk, and be friendly with the family. Unlike the clinical setting, your job with elective ultrasounds is to HAVE A FUN TIME!
While reading the information below please remember that each machine will have its own controls and buttons. So it is important to remember that learning the meaning behind the controls and buttons will help you when you use different equipment. Terminology controls and this may refer mostly to the Samsung A30 (with HD).
Manipulation of three data sets is simple, if you can train your brain to think 3D.
2D = acquisition of two dimensional information
3D = acquisition by three and a motorized scanning techniques to display:
Volume rendered image
Surface rendering image
4D = “Real Time” 3D – continuous display of the 3D images
Acquisition of 3D data
3D data is usually acquired as a large number of consecutive tomographic images through the movement of a 3D ultrasound probe. These “tomograms” are digitized and loaded into the machines software program, along with positional information to build the volume of data.
Transducers that support 3D image acquisition require you to hold the transducer in a fixed location during acquisition.
Construction of the 3D data set
The tomographic slices obtain through the image acquisition must be constructed three-dimensionally into a 3D data set for further computer processing.
The 3D data set is composed of a set of volume elements, which are basically a three dimensional representation of the pixels. Each body element defines a point in three-dimensional space with an X, Y, & Z coordinates. That this lady can be minute deleted in the same manner as pixels and can also be changed by manipulation of texture transparency and brightness controls.
Volume visualization of the data
The 3D data must be processed by the computer to be displayed on the monitor. There are three main rendering models commonly used. For 3D/4D elective ultrasound we use the surface rendering mode. Surface rendering is when we show the face or body part as if it was a “photo.”

We are so excited to be able to announce that another Ultrasound Trainers has had a helping hand in opening another studio. Baby Zoom 4D is the newest 3D/4D HD Elective Ultrasound studio in the Southern Denver area. Baby Zoom 4D is located in Castle Rock, CO.
Combining cutting-edge technology with a spa & theater environment, we bring unbelievable images of your unborn baby to life! Now you can see your baby up close and personal with a 3D ultrasound, 4D ultrasound, and HD Ultrasound.
Zach & I grew up here in Castle Rock and our son, Castin has inspired us to open the very first HD Ultrasound & Newborn Studio. After getting the opportunity to experience this during our pregnancy with Castin, we realized how much we loved the concept of being able to see our babies features before even meeting him. My name is Courtney and I have been a family/wedding photographer here in Castle Rock for about 5 years now so incorporating the ultrasound aspect into opening my very own studio was everything I could ask for! I have always wanted my own studio to work with newborns and since we are located in Colorado, a studio is definitely necessary. So now, not only do I get to continue my line of work by adding on newborn sessions, I get to meet soon to be moms and I get to experience their first 3D/4D ultrasound with them and that is so, so special!
Family is so important to Zach & I and we are so family oriented that this business only seemed perfect for us. We hope that you feel the same way and we hope that you leave Baby Zoom feeling overwhelmed with emotion and happiness! We are so happy for you and your new addition to your family.
We can record our little one’s heartbeat starting as soon as 10 weeks!
Did you know that we are able to tell gender as early as 16 weeks!
We are open Tuesday – Saturday by appointment only.
