What is a 3D ultrasound?

INTRODUCTION

 

While reading of the same across the board 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 GE Voluson 730 PRO.

 

Manipulation of three data sets is simple, if you can train your brain to think 3D.

 

What is 3D ultrasound?

 

2D = acquisition of two dimensional information

 

3D = acquisition by three and a motorized scanning techniques to display:

Volume rendered image

Surface rendering image

Sectional images

 

4D Ultrasound = “Real Time” 3D – continuous display of the 3D images

 

Physics of 3D Ultrasound

 

  1. Acquisition of the 3D data set – 3D data is usually acquired as a large number of consecutive, tomographic images through the movement of a 3D ultrasound probe, using their automatic method acquisition
  2. Construction of the 3D data set – tomographic images obtained must be constructed into a 3-D data set and processed by the machines software. 2D images are composed of pixels, 3D data sets are composed of a set of volume elements each of which have a gray scale
  3. Volume – visualization of the data.

 

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.

 

Motorized acquisition

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.”

Durham 4D Baby, a 3D/4D Elective Ultrasound Studio in Durham, NC is located near: Graham, Mebame, Efland, Hillsborough, Chapel Hill, Raleigh, Cary, Morrisville, Apex, Garner, New Hill, Holly Springs, Pittsboro, Butner, Wake Forest, Knightdale, Greensboro, Clayton, and Sanford.

What is the difference between 3D ultrasound and 4D ultrasound?
3D is a still image while 4D adds the dimension of motion so it looks like a video.

What is your facility like?
We pride ourselves on being an inviting, relaxing, comfortable, and spacious environment for you and your family. We are also located in an up-scale retail location rather than sterile looking office buildings.

Is 3D and 4D ultrasound safe for me and my baby?
3D and 4D ultrasound use the same frequency as your doctor uses in the normal 2D ultrasound. Ultrasounds have been used for over 35 years and there have been no proven side effects from its proper use. We strictly adhere to the FDA’s standards.

Do you accept insurance?
No, we do not accept insurance because this is an elective procedure.

When is the best time to have a 3d/4d ultrasound?
That depends on what you are looking to see. Many mothers like coming in twice, early on, 15-26 weeks, when they can see the baby as a whole, and then again at 25-34 weeks to see a more detailed face. Between 28 and 32 weeks, your baby develops more fat and gets a more defined face. After 34 weeks, it becomes more and more difficult to obtain good pictures since the baby is running out of room. However all babies are different and we have been successful in obtaining great images all the way up to 39 weeks. Feel free to CLICK HERE to view our Best Scan Ultrasound Calendar to help determine when the best time to come in for your ultrasound is.

How good are you at determining the sex of the baby?
At 15 weeks we can determine the gender with a very high accuracy. If you are over 15 weeks and the gender can not be seen, we invite you back for a weekday return appointment and we will rescan you for free within the next 14 days. The need for a return visit is usually due to the baby’s position.

How can I be sure to get the best possible 3D/4D pictures?
Most doctors recommend maintaining a healthy fluid intake, especially while you are pregnant. This will help to ensure 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.

What should I do prior to the 3D/4D appointment?
Drink plenty of water even several days before your appointment to ensure your amniotic fluid is clear. About a half hour before your 3D/4D ultrasound scan, try to drink a fruit juice so that your baby will be awake during your session (unless you are told not to by your physician).

How long is the 3D/4D ultrasound session?
Depending on the ultrasound package that you select, your session will last between 10 and 25 minutes. However, plan on spending 30 minutes to an hour at our studio so that we can send you home with memories to last a life time. It is best to arrive a few minutes early to fill out our paperwork.

Are family and friends welcome to join?
Yes! We encourage you to bring your friends and family to share this special moment with you. Children are also welcome and we provide them with plenty of toys and books to keep them entertained. At our Durham, NC location our ultrasound room can comfortably seat 10 plus people, but more are welcome if they would like to stand and watch. The ultrasound is projected onto a 120 inch screen so that everyone is able to see with ease.

How can I pay for the ultrasound?
We currently accept major credit/debit cards and cash.

When do I get my 3D/4D pictures and videos?
Less than 5 minutes after your session has ended.

Will my doctor be contacted about the 3d/4d ultrasound?
We do not contact your doctor prior to the scan since this is an elective procedure. If we do see something wrong during the scan, we contact your doctor and send her the report. We do require however that you currently are under prenatal care and if you have any concerns, you should ask your doctor. Ultrasound technicians in general cannot make a diagnosis.

Will I always get great images of my baby?
Most of the time we are able to get great images, but not always. Sometimes if the baby is looking face down toward mom’s spine we are unable to get images, or if the baby is laying against the placenta. Every baby scans differently, depending on its gestational age, position, amount of fluid, and mother’s condition. We promise to make every effort to obtain the best possible images of whatever parts of the baby that can be seen.

What will determine quality of the images?
Fetal position is the number one determination of how your image quality. Some babies come ready for viewing and great images are obtained. Others simply turn their back or cuddle up to the placenta or the uterine wall or insist on putting their hands and feet in front of their face. We will try hard to make your baby move in order to see and image the face. Drinking juice or eating a little candy may help the baby move a little on that day of imaging.

What can I do to improve the images of my ultrasound?
WATER! is the best answer to how to improve your images. You should be drinking plenty of water beginning at least 7 days before your scheduled appointment. Water can improve the quality of an ultrasound.

What if we are not able to get images?
It is our number one priority at Durham 4D Baby to obtain the absolute best images of your baby & make sure you are satisfied to the fullest. We use the top of the line ultrasound equipment to ensure this, however, some factors that determine the outcome of your ultrasound are out of our control such as: location of your placenta, the amount of amniotic fluid surrounding your baby, the clarity of the amniotic fluid, the baby’s position, & the overall fetal environment. If we are unable to determine the gender of your child or obtain 3D/4D images at your scheduled appointment due to these factors mentioned above, you will be asked to reschedule & come back for a second appointment within the next 14 days at no charge.

What if my baby is breech?
Breech position is when the baby’s head is located at the top of your uterus & feet are down. If you do know that your baby is breech prior to your 3D/4D ultrasound, we do advise you to reschedule your appointment a few weeks later to allow more time for the baby to turn. Good pictures can be obtained with breech babies, but they not guaranteed & are much more likely if the baby is head down. However some babies remain breech until very late in the pregnancy or never turn, if this is the case you can still do a 3D/4D ultrasound and we should be able to get good images if you have plenty of amniotic fluid.

If I am overweight will I be able to get clear ultrasound images?
If you are overweight you should not be afraid to have a 4D elective ultrasound, however we strongly urge that you wait until after 30 weeks gestation to give the baby time to obtain more fat on their face. If you are overweight you will need to have a VERY high level of amniotic fluid to obtain clear images of the baby. If you drink the recommend amount of water in the weeks leading up to your appointment there is no reason you should not be able to obtain great images!

    • 13-14 weeks for characteristics of potential Down syndrome
    • 18-22 weeks for congenital malformations
  • Structural abnormalities
  • Confirm multiples pregnancy
  • Verify dates and growth
  • Identify hydramnios or oligohydramnios –(excessive or reduced levels of amniotic fluid)

Third Trimester:

Samsung A35 – HD Ultrasound Machine

The brand new Samsung A35 is a mid-upper range color Doppler ultrasound from Samsung Medison. It replaces the Accuvix A30 ultrasound machine, adding a 23″ High Resolution LED monitor, S-Vue ultrasound transducers, and improved image quality. It features good cardiac and radiology and is well known for its solid 4d imaging.

The A35 is Samsung’s newest HD ultrasound machine that is both budget friendly as well gives you the ability to offer great images to your clients without sacrifice. Much like it’s predecessor the A30 the new A35 offers the same options with greater image quality.

Ergonomically, the A35 features a height adjustable console, high resolution LED monitor display and easy to read touch menu for a more comfortable scanning experience.

The Samsung Medison A35 features the Hybrid Beamforming engine, which uses software in addition to hardware beamforming in order to produce a more precise and accurate image. Traditionally, the ultrasound relied solely on hardware to interpret the ultrasound signals. This provides more precise transmission and reception of the ultrasound signal, resulting in exceptional image clarity.

 

  • Innovative 3D/4D Imaging Technologies for Exceptional Detail and Realistic Depth Perception
  • ADVR Advanced Digital recorder
  • 23″ Full HD LED Display Monitor for Excellent Clarity, Color and Contrast Resolution
  • S-Vue™ Transducers Deliver Wider Bandwidths for Increased Depth Penetration and Higher Quality Resolution

 

S-VueTM Transducer

In addition to the advanced beamforming capabilities,
the A35 incorporates the next-generation single-crystal probe technology called S-VueTM transducers. Employing an innovative crystal design, S-VueTM transducers provide more efficient piezoelectric properties, resulting in wider bandwidths for increased depth penetration and higher quality resolution on even the most challenging of patients.

 

FRVTM (Feto Realistic View)

Displays high resolution 3D anatomy with exceptional detail and realistic depth perception. User-selectable light source direction creates intricate graduated shadows to better define anatomical structures.

HD Volume ImagingTM

Reduces specular artifacts throughout the volume data set, enhancing border detection and contract resolution in both rendered images and multiplanar display.

 

ADVRTM

Advanced Digital Video Recorder allows for recording live streaming video of the ultrasound screen directly to either the integrated DVD (720 x 480) or USB storage device (in full HD 1920 x 1080).

Baby’s development in the second trimester:

 

Weeks 14 Thru 16:

The baby’s skin is transparent and a fine hair (lanugo) begins to form on the head.  The baby begins sucking and even swallows small amounts of amniotic fluid.  Fingerprints are now developed on the tiny fingers of the baby.  Flutters may be felt now as the baby begins to move around more.  Sometimes feeling the movement will come a little later though.  These early flutter feelings can feel similar to gas or bubbles in your stomach.  The baby has reached 4 inches in length (crown to rump) and weighs around 3-4 ounces.  Baby is about the size of an avocado at this point.

Weeks 17 Thru 20:

The baby has reached a point where movements are being felt more often.  The baby now has eyebrows and eyelashes growing in, and tiny nails are beginning to grow on the fingers and toes. A heartbeat can be heard via stethoscope now. Studies suggest that baby can now hear your voice, so go ahead and start reading aloud or singing to him or her.  The baby has reached a length of 6 inches (crown to rump) or 10 inches from head to feet and weighs about 10 ounces.

Weeks 21 Thru 24:

The baby is beginning to look more and more like a newborn as the skin becomes less transparent.  Your uterus has now risen above your belly button and is near the size of a soccer ball.  Baby’s movements start feeling more like full-fledged kicks instead of little flutters.  The baby weighs about 1 pound and 5 ounces now and is about a foot long!  His body is more proportional now, but still pretty skinny. Baby will put on more fat during the third trimester.

Weeks 24 Thru 27:

Your baby has now developed a sleep and wake cycle and you may begin to notice the pattern yourself. Baby’s wrinkled skin will start to smooth out as he or she develops some baby fat. Hair is also growing now! Starting in the 27th week, your baby will be able to open and close his or her eyes! Along with kicks and movements, you may notice little rhythmic movements- baby hiccups! Weighing in at almost 2 pounds and 14 inches long, your baby would be capable of functioning now if born- with medical help of course.

 

What to expect in 4D at different stages of pregnancy.

 

8-14 weeks provides early views where you can see the baby as a whole and listen to the heartbeat.
