WHAT IS THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 2D, 3D AND 4D IMAGING?
2D ultrasounds are the traditional black & white ultrasounds. The pictures show the skeletal structure of the baby. You can also see the baby moving. This is the type of ultrasound that was probably used for your diagnostic ultrasound.
3D imaging shows the tissue (skin) of the baby. These are the images that look like pictures of your baby rather than pictures of your baby's skeleton. You can see the roundness of the baby's face, the shape of the nose and the contours of the lips. The color is computer generated to enhance the pictures and make them more appealing.
4D imaging is video where you see the baby moving with the clarity of the amazing 3D imaging. HD Live is software that is used to smooth out the picture and make it a sharper image.
Ultrasounds have been used since the 1950s. Many extensive studies over this time have shown that ultrasounds are not known to cause any harm to mother or baby. Discuss with your OB if you have any concerns. Many Oklahoma doctors carry our business cards to give to their clients.
We can perform ultrasounds at any time during your pregnancy. However, the best time for 3D/4D images is between 28-32 weeks. After 32 weeks we can still get good pictures but the baby starts to get crowded. There is a link at the bottom of this page to help you determine which week to schedule based upon your due date.

No, a full bladder is not necessary. But, being well hydrated increases the transparency of the amniotic fluid which greatly affects the clarity of the images. If you want to maximize the likelihood of getting great images drink plenty of water for the 2 or 3 days before your appointment.
