DIFFERENCE BETWEEN 2D 3D 4D &HD (HD=5D) ULTRASOUNDS
Updated: Oct 26
This is a very common and great question. What really is the difference between 2D, 3D, 4D & HD? Below you will find a break down provided by Sneak a Baby Peek.
2D is your standard black & white that you see in doctors offices as well. It is the easiest and best way to find baby's positioning. Mainly due to the fact that in 2D you can see skeletal structurers that make internal organs visible. This is why Heart beat checks (6weeks) and gender check (13 weeks) are commonly done in 2D form.
3D is going to have filter that bring out baby's features in real form. It creates a different perspective by merging a series of 2D images taken from various angles into a composite to form a 3D (3 Dimensional) pictures. 3D allows us to see more detailed features and provides a realistic view for sonographers.
4D is very similar to 3D in form, but instead of creating still images, it captures video of baby's movements. Yawning, stretching and all movement are captured when using the 4D (4 Dimensional) function. Not all Ultrasound studios have a 4D/HD machine so be sure to ask. You want to make sure you are getting the best images possible.
HD /5D Live ultrasound (also known as High-Definition Live or 5D ultrasound) is a variation of 4D ultrasound technology that uses advanced software and hardware to produce high-quality, realistic images of the developing fetus. (5Dimensional).
Best when mom is between 27-34 weeks pregnant. Again not all Ultrasound studios have a 4D/HD machine so be sure to ask. You want to make sure you are getting the best images possible.
Ask us about our latest technology we offer. 8K it is an added enhancement to any 3D or HD Ultrasound image. This will show you what baby looks like in real time before they even arrive. The features are so realistic that no other technology can compare. Please see the 8K image below
