3D Frequently Asked Questions

Q: Do I need an appointment?

Yes, appointments are necessary to allow adequate time for your special visit. However, sometimes, same day appointments are available due to re-scheduling. After hours appointments are available with purchase of the Ultimate Package.  Please call and ask.

Q: Can I take children and relatives?

Siblings of any age are welcome as long as a friend or family member is available to tend to them. We want this to be a special moment in your pregnancy with limited distractions. Friends and family members are of course welcome. You can bring up to six guests, or just make it a special day for yourself and/or your significant other.  If you would like to bring more guests, please arrange this in advance so we can best accommodate your request.

Q: On what week of my pregnancy do I get the best images?

Optimum viewing time is between the 26th and 34th week of pregnancy. However you are welcome to come in anytime after the 18th week to determine gender.  Many of our clients like to come in once in the second trimester, and then again the in the third. We will discount your second package by taking $25.00 off the package you select.

Q: Is it safe for me and my baby?

Extensive studies over 30 years have been conducted and have not shown any cause to harm mother or baby.  Routine scanning in the United States is now very accepted and normal.  The intensity of the ultrasound in 3D/4D is the same as conventional 2D.  Ultrasound works on sound waves that enter the body through the transducer that is placed on the mother's abdomen. The echo that is generated is what creates the image that you see.  If you have any concerns please check with your physician.

Q: Does my insurance covers this procedure?

No, all costs are covered by the client at the time of the procedure as this is an elective ultrasound for the purpose of bonding with your baby and obtaining images of the baby's surface.  We accept cash, ATM, MasterCard or Visa.

Q: What kind of equipment do you use?

We are proud to use the GE Voluson 730 Expert ultrasound system.
