3D fetal ultrasound pregnancy scans are now widely available in the private sector. A 3D ultrasound scan provides a much more detailed picture than a traditional 2D ultrasound scan. The 3D ultrasound image can provide more accurate measurements, and both doctors and parents can better appreciate a certain abnormality or the absence of a certain abnormality with a 3D scan. 3D ultrasound pregnancy scans also show how the baby “behaves” in the womb and is able to monitor foetal movement. With 3D ultrasound, you can actually see what your baby looks like before birth, making a 3D scan a good way of bonding with your unborn child.
The best time for a 3D baby ultrasound scan is around 27-34 weeks.
A private 3D ultrasound or 4D ultrasound scan in the UK will last around one hour and cost around £180 to £250.
For a comparison of 2D, 4D and 3D ultrasound scans, take a look at the GE Medical Systems web site, one of the companies which has developed these advances in ultrasound technology.
