3D is a still image while 4D adds the dimension of motion so it looks like a video.
We pride ourselves on being an inviting, relaxing, comfortable, and spacious environment for you and your family.
3D and 4D ultrasound use the same frequency as your doctor uses in the normal 2D ultrasound. Ultrasounds have been used for over 35 years and there have been no proven side effects from its proper use.
That depends on what you are looking to see. Many mothers like coming in twice, early on, 15-26 weeks, when they can see the baby as a whole, and then again at 25-34 weeks to see a more detailed face. Between 28 and 32 weeks, your baby develops more fat and gets a more defined face. After 34 weeks, it becomes more and more difficult to obtain good pictures since the baby is running out of room. However all babies are different and we have been successful in obtaining great images all the way up to 36 weeks
At 14 weeks we can determine the gender with a very high accuracy. If you are over 14 weeks and the gender cannot be seen, we invite you back for a weekday return appointment and we will rescan you for free within the next 14 days. The need for a return visit is usually due to the baby's position. However accurate your exam may be , we cannot guarantee with100% assurance the gender of your baby, nor can we be held liable in any way for an incorrect gender determination.
Most doctors recommend maintaining a healthy fluid intake, especially while you are pregnant. This will help to ensure your amniotic fluid is clear as well as full. There are many things out of the ultrasound technician’s control like the baby's position, the mother's skin type and build, amount of amniotic fluid, etc.
Drink plenty of water even several days before your appointment to ensure your amniotic fluid is clear. About a half hour before your 3D/4D ultrasound scan, try to drink a fruit juice so that your baby will be awake during your session (unless you are told not to by your physician).
Depending on the ultrasound package that you select, your session will last between 10 and 30 minutes. However, plan on spending 30 minutes to an hour at our studio so that we can send you home with memories to last a life time. It is best to arrive a few minutes early to fill out our paperwork.
Yes! We encourage you to bring your friends and family to share this special moment with you. Children are also welcome and we provide them with plenty of toys and books to keep them entertained. At our Niagara location our ultrasound room can comfortably seat 7 people, but more are welcome if they would like to stand and watch. The ultrasound is projected onto a 50 inch screen so that everyone is able to see with ease.
We currently accept major credit/debit cards and cash.
