3D and 4D ultrasounds
Ultrasound is the safest way of looking inside the human body. It involves the use of high-frequency sound waves which are harmless to the human body. At Trust Imaging, we have highly trained ultrasound specialists.
An Ultrasound scanning can help in almost any domain of disease identification. It may be used to:
- To get information about the health of an unborn baby.
- Pregnancy Confirmation.
- To check the size and position of the unborn baby.
- To check for twins.
- To check gestational age.
- Check for signs of Down syndrome, which include thickening in the back of the baby's neck.
- Check for birth defects in the brain, spinal cord, heart, or other parts of the body.
- Check the amount of amniotic fluid. Amniotic fluid is a clear liquid that surrounds an unborn baby during pregnancy. It protects the baby from outside injury and cold. It also helps promote lung development and bone growth.
Diagnostic ultrasound may also be used to:
- Find out if blood is flowing at a normal rate and level.
- See if there is a problem with the structure of your heart.
- Look for blockages in the gallbladder.
- Check the thyroid gland for cancer or non-cancerous growths.
- Check for abnormalities in the abdomen and kidneys.
- Help guide a biopsy procedure. A biopsy is a procedure that removes a small sample of tissue for testing.
Both 3D and 4D ultrasounds are an improvement from 2D technology. The increased visual detail is key to diagnosing critical health conditions as early as possible.
Here are the advantages and disadvantages of each:
3D ultrasound is used to produce 3-dimensional images. In terms of pregnancy, 3D ultrasound can help diagnose external issues like cleft lip or spine curvature. It is also a great tool for analyzing fetal heart structures.
This imaging type is also relevant to other areas of healthcare. 3D echocardiography, or 3DE, is used to track blood flow, the rate of expansions and contractions, and chamber volume. Interventional cardiology practices also use 3D ultrasound to evaluate structural heart disease.
4D ultrasound is essentially 3D ultrasound in motion. This equipment enables the live streaming of 3D images in a video format.
The main application of 4D imaging in healthcare specialties is to examine moving organs.
According to the PC-PNDT Act, performing a pregnancy ultrasound without a valid prescription having the doctor’s DMC/HMC/MCI registration number, phone number and other details is forbidden.
