Ultrasound scans were introduced over 40 years ago and are considered to be the safest, non-invasive and accurate investigation of a baby. It has become an indispensable obstetric tool and plays an important role in the care of every pregnant woman. The pictures of the moving fetus can be depicted on a monitor screen accomplished with very high frequency sound waves. They are emitted from a transducer which is placed in contact with the maternal abdomen and is moved to look at any particular content of the baby.
Most experts do not consider that 3D and 4D ultrasound will be a mandatory evolution of our conventional 2-D scans, rather it is an additional piece of tool. Viewing an ultrasound of your baby in 3d/4d is much easier to see for the untrained eye. The attraction of being able to look at the face and movements of your baby before birth was also enthusiastically reported in parenting and health magazines, to have a catalytic effect for mothers to bond with their babies before birth
The greatest risks arising from the use of ultrasounds are brought about by inadequately trained staff, and using poor equipment. Unique Ultrasound requires that all our sonographers have completed their ultrasound schooling/training and have a minimum of one year experience before joining our staff. Our ultrasound equipment is the state of the art GE Voluson i. This machine is the best 2D, 3D, and 4D ultrasound machine available. GE continues to lead the industry’s technological advances and our equipment is regularly updated to give you access to the most advance technology available, this providing images with amazing clarity and seeing your baby in motion.
