FAQ

Do 3-D Ultrasounds harm my baby?

Because 3-D Ultrasounds are a mere extension of a usual ultrasound exam, there are no greater risks of performing a 3-D ultrasound exam than having a regular diagnostic ultrasound.



Can 3-D ultrasound pictures be obtained on everyone?

Although pictures are obtainable in most cases, 3-D ultrasound image quality is very dependent on the baby’s position. If the baby is facing away from the ultrasound probe during the exam, for instance, a 3-D picture could be nearly impossible to obtain.



How well can ultrasound determine the sex of my child?

Sex determination is not an absolute with ultrasound. In the hands of an experienced Ultrasound Technologist, sex determination is usually very good after 17 weeks of pregnancy. Also, your unborn child moves into a position that is comfortable. These positions are not always good for the evaluation and visualization of the genitalia. Given these factors, one must keep in mind that sex determination is not always correct. Even the most veteran of Sonographers can mistake one sex for another.


How far into my pregnancy can I schedule my ultrasound?

You can schedule an ultrasound any time after 8 weeks, however, sex cannot be determined until at least the 17th week and 3D pictures come out best between 22 and 32 weeks of pregnancy. After 32 weeks it is normal for there to be less fluid around the baby which is important for creating the 3D images.
