Ultrasonography, sometimes referred to as sonography, uses high-frequency sound waves and a computer to create images of blood vessels, tissues and organs. Ultrasounds are used to view internal organs and assess blood flow through various vessels.
Ultrasound procedures are often used to examine many parts of the body such as the abdomen, breasts, female pelvis, prostate, scrotum, thyroid and parathyroid, and the vascular system. During pregnancy, ultrasounds are performed to evaluate the development of the fetus.

2D ultrasounds are standard testing for anyone who is pregnant. Healthcare providers typically perform 2D ultrasounds during the first trimester of pregnancy. During these first months of pregnancy, the diagnostic ultrasound is used to estimate the baby’s expected due date and to look for abnormalities.
A 3D-4D ultrasound adds the element of time and dimension to the process. The results are three dimensional, live action images of your baby. The 3D and 4D ultrasound uses technology to bring images of your unborn baby to life. This elective, limited diagnostic ultrasound allows you to take a peek at your baby's movement inside the womb.
