What 4D/HD ultrasound machine should I buy?

What 4D/HD ultrasound machine should I buy?

Now, that is a loaded question! There are multiple factors that go into deciding what ultrasound equipment you should use and purchase at your ultrasound studio. Some of the questions that need to be asked are: 

  • Do I want to go with just 3D/4D or do I want HD Live?
  • Am I brand loyal to a specific ultrasound manufacturer?
  • How much do I want to spend on my ultrasound equipment?
  • Are there advantages to one ultrasound machine over another?

  • Do I want to go with just 3D/4D or do I want HD Live?
    • With the advancement of ultrasound imaging technology over the past few years, standard 3D/4D ultrasound have become almost obsolete. Clients have become savvy and recognize that image quality and seeing their baby in the best format possible is what matters. With this being said offering HD Live (Fetal Realistic View, and 5D) ultrasound has become crucial for elective ultrasound studios. Not offering HD at your ultrasound studio can be a serious detriment and cause for clients to choose another studio over yours. Don’t be afraid though…  if you go with a machine that offers HD/5D/FRV you are still able to offer your clients the traditional 3D/4D experience.
  • Am I brand loyal to a specific ultrasound manufacturer?
    • Often times we will work with clients who are extremely brand loyal and yet we have some who are open to new ideas and advice on the best ultrasound machine for their needs. Yes, having experience on a specific brand will help you adjust to your new equipment in record time but with the advancements in ultrasound equipment there isn’t as much of a learning curve when switching brands as there was in the past. 
  • How much do I want to spend on my ultrasound equipment?
    • $$$ – What doesn’t come down to money and cost these days. Choosing the best ultrasound equipment for our business will be partly based on how much money you want to spend. Yes, spending top dollar will get you the best equipment on the market, but do you really need that premium ultrasound machine for your location? When working with Ultrasound Trainers we take multiple factors into consideration when we help to recommend the best ultrasound equipment for your elective ultrasound studio. Some of the factors we look at: population around your business, current equipment being used by competitors, financials, business plans and expansion plans. 
  • Are there advantages to one ultrasound machine over another?
    • Yes & No… This is like asking someone if you should buy a manual or automatic car… With some circumstances one would be preferred over the other. Picking the right ultrasound equipment for your ultrasound studio will be based on multiple factors. There is no right machine for every circumstance. By working with Ultrasound Trainers, you will get the pros and cons of each machine based on your unique circumstance.
