  • 3D/4D Ultrasound explained

    3D Ultrasounds are when a series of thin 2D slices are digitally reconstructed to give more life-like images with 4D scans have the added dimension of time so the 3D images appear to be moving.

    3D/4D ultrasound uses the same ultrasound beams as the conventional 2D ultrasound, with extra processing performed by the ultrasound machine's computer. There is some diagnostic advantages for the use of 3D/4D ultrasound in obstetrics.

  • Preparation | Female pelvis Ultrasound

    Empty your bladder 1 hour before your appointment time, then drink 1 litre of water over 15 minutes.

  • What happens during the procedure

    You may be asked to put on a gown. Gel is applied to the skin to improve contact between the skin and transducer (a handheld plastic probe that sends and receives the reflected sound waves that form the image).  The transducer is moved slowly over the abdomen to acquire images in different planes. A special transducer will allow a computer to generate a 3 dimensional image. Real time 3D imaging allows movement to be observed (a 4D ultrasound). The images are displayed on a computer monitor for interpretation. Ultrasound is painless but discomfort from transducer pressure may be experienced if your bladder is full.

  • How long does it take?

    An ultrasound takes approx 15-60 minutes depending on the complexity.

  • After Your Examination

    There are no restrictions after having an ultrasound.

  • Your images and report

    After your examination, you will be given a copy of the most pertinent images from your study. A report will be given to you with the images, or sent directly back to your referring doctor by fax or email. We will store digital copies of all studies on our secure database for comparison with any future examinations.

    Please bring any previous ultrasounds with you.

    It is important that you return to your doctor with your examination results. Whether they are normal or abnormal, your doctor needs to know promptly so that a management plan can be formulated.

An ultrasound is a safe and non-invasive examination that uses very high frequency sound waves to produce high resolution images on almost all body parts.
