Ultrasound

Demo echo Nancy (100_1184)Ultrasound is a technique that makes use of sound waves and computer technology to create an image on screen of internal organs, tissue, or a fetus. These images can be printed on photographic paper. The frequency of the sound waves is so high that we cannot hear them. The ultrasound waves are transmitted through a transducer, a hand-held device, which the ultrasound professional moves over the abdomen in order to get the desired image on screen.

3-D ultrasound

With three-dimensional (3-D) ultrasound technology, a series of scans are done very rapidly from different angles and are then composed into one 3-D picture. 3-D provides a realistic and clear view of the baby. Since you can also see actions of the baby, this technique is also referred to as 3-D/4-D ultrasound.
