An ultrasound scan, sometimes called a sonogram, is a procedure that
uses high frequency sound waves to create an image of part of the
inside of the body, such as the heart. As sound waves are used
rather than radiation. Ultrasound scans are commonly used during pregnancy to produce
images of the baby in the womb.
Ultrasound waves are directed at your body using a
small handheld sensor called a transducer. This is moved over the
surface of the skin and generates sound waves. When the sound waves
hit an object, such as a heart valve, they bounce back as an echo. A
computer converts the reflected ultrasound echoes into an image.
"I Can See You!" 3D Ultrasound Scans provide colour enhanced three dimensional images of your unborn baby. The 4D packages provide a DVD containing a 10-15 minute video of the baby bonding ultrasound scan taken during the 30-40 minute appointment.
During your ultrasound appointment you and your family
and friends will be able to watch the full ultrasound
session live on our large screen.
