The on-screen images are moving in real time, but are flat and black and white. 2D ultrasounds are normally performed in hospitals for fetal diagnosis. For parents it is at times difficult to recognize the figure of their baby in these images.
This type of ultrasound is used in Gynecology since the late 80s and early 90s. Offers better resolution and sharpness of the image of the baby. It shows a static image in three dimensions of the fetus and its structures, with a more crisp color than the black and white of the traditional ultrasound.
4 d ultrasound
Ultrasound in four dimensions is the latest in technology, it’s a video of the ultrasound of the fetus inside the womb. It looks like an ultrasound in 3D but recorded and seen in real time. 4D Ultrasound shows the fetus in real movement, and you can see for example if your baby sucks it’s thumb, makes facial gestures, yawns, plays with the umbilical cord or if it’s arms or legs are moving.
