3D/4D Utrasound Explained


Unline 2D scans where you see the internal organs and outline of your baby, with 3D and 4D scans, you see your baby's skin. You may see the shape of your baby's mouth and nose, or be able to spot him or her yawning or sticking their tongue out. 3D and 4D scans are considered as safe as 2D scans, because the images are made up of sections of two-dimensional images converted into a picture.
