Woman eagerly awaits the growth of her baby and reaches a recognizable stage in which she can see it through ultrasound, which has recently seen great progress with which the fetus can be seen in different dimensions.
A 3D ultrasound performs a complete scan of all parts of the uterus and ovaries, so each part, even a small one, can be studied with extreme accuracy, which means a better accurate diagnosis and a better result is exists. And it treats the uterus to its nature (size), it gives a stereoscopic image of the uterine cavity and shows the presence of appendages or fibroids within the uterine cavity, which directly prevents the binding of embryos, whether in spontaneous pregnancy or in assisted fertilization methods such as artificial insemination and in vitro fertilization (IVF).
A 4D ultrasound is a way to produce an animated image or video of your baby inside the uterus, which uses sound waves to create this moving image. While 3D sonar gives you a 3D image of your baby, 4D scan takes this experience to a more advanced level by producing a video of your baby inside the uterus, where you can see what your baby is doing at that moment, whether he's moving or smiling.
3D ultrasound technique
3D ultrasound allows the mother to see the width, length and (depth) of the embryo's images in the same way as 3D films but without movement (stereoscopic images). The doctor and mother can also learn more details about the condition of pregnancy and fetus. The doctor helps to detect any problem the fetus is going through, as the doctor who specializes in 3D imaging passes the rays device around the mother's uterus just like a normal sonar test, but the computer here will take multiple.
4D ultrasound technique
4D scan is one of the latest technology in ultrasound and offers a complete view similar to 3D imaging but a moving display. 3D images capture any stereoscopic (length, width, and depth) but are added after a fourth time or time element, allowing parents to see their child in real time or in direct time faster. One of the benefits of this type of imaging is that it allows for diagnosis and detection of structural defects in the fetus because the images are animated. The 4D ultrasound device does not require an effort from the attending physician to rotate the image taken to take the third dimension, which takes images and display them in three dimensions on the screen.
All these advantages made us Bedaya Hospital beginning to use the latest devices and technologies to improve the chance of childbearing and the ability to diagnose well.
The difference between 3D and 4D ultrasound
4-D is similar to 3-D, but it shows the movement, so you can see your baby opening and closing it’s eyes. the two types of imaging are frequently used because of their many advantages that enable mother to follow the pregnancy and determine very accurate details about the condition of the baby to check for his safety and to detect the presence of any birth defects in the fetus or disabilities, In addition, it gives the father and mother the opportunity to keep an up close on their child's growth, movements and behavior, and they can get a full-examined video of their unborn child!
some time as in the case of 3D imaging, but here the device itself works to give the third dimension on time without the help of the doctor.
Best time for 4d ultrasound
The best time for 4d ultrasound of the pregnant woman is between the 26-32 week of pregnancy, as the fetus at this time is moving freely and its body are well visible, allowing the doctor to take a clear picture of him and his movement. It should be noted that the sex of the fetus can be known between the 19th and 24th weeks of pregnancy, which can be confirmed through this examination as well.
Although the 4D scan allows the mother to see her Baby who isn’t born yet , compared to 2D scan as she can see its movement inside her and may be eager to take a photos of her little one, which is still inside her womb , but before doing this, it is important to understand the damage of 4D rays on the fetus, and when to use it during pregnancy to ensure that everything is done to keep the baby safe and healthy.
According to the U.S. Congress and the specialist there is no known risk of ultrasound in pregnant women, they should be used carefully and for medical purposes only.
And according to the FOOD and Drug Administration, when ultrasound enters the body it heats the tissue of the baby which in some cases may lead to the creation of small pockets of gas in body fluids or tissues, and the long-term effects of this are not yet known. It is recommended that pregnant women have at least one ultrasound between the 18th and 22nd weeks of pregnancy, noting that some women may need ultrasound in the first trimester of pregnancy. Experts also warn against using any type of ultrasound for the medical purpose, because in addition to the risk of endangering your baby's health.
