We know that you might have several questions about 3D Fetal Imaging and to help you better understand the process and our services, we have provided the following information.

 

IS 3D ULTRASOUND SAFE?
3D ultrasound utilizes sound waves to look inside the body. The technology is similar to radar. A probe placed on the body emits sound waves into the body, listens for the return echo and generates an image. Extensive studies over 30 years have found that ultrasound has not been shown to cause any harm to mother or baby.

IS THIS ULTRASOUND VISIT EQUIVALENT TO A DOCTOR’S OFFICE VISIT?
First Glance 3D Ultrasound requires that each patient has prenatal care from their OB/GYN physician prior to taking part in our services. At no time is this viewing session to be used in place of a complete diagnostic ultrasound. THIS IS A NON-DIAGNOSTIC SERVICE.

WHEN SHOULD I COME IN FOR A 3D ULTRASOUND SESSION?
We recommend that you plan on having a 3D ultrasound session preformed between your 27th and 32nd week of pregnancy. This is the optimal time to see detailed images of the face, feet and hands. It is common for parents to come in as early as their 18th week for a gender check and repeat the ultrasound later to see the baby as he or she develops. It’s amazing how much the baby changes.

HOW MANY GUESTS CAN I BRING TO MY SESSION?
Everyone who comes for a 3D/4D ultrasound is welcome to bring up to eight (8) people to share and enjoy the experience in our theater-viewing environment. By viewing your unborn child the bond will strengthen, you feel a sense of closeness, not only with your baby but with your family and friends around you.

DOES INSURANCE COVER THE 3D ULTRASOUND SESSION?
Insurance does not cover the costs of our ultrasound. Since this is an elective procedure and is non-diagnostic, this does not replace your doctor ordered ultrasound, you will need to pay the cost of this ultrasound as an out of pocket expense. We accept cash, visa and master card for your convenience.

DO I NEED TO MAKE AN APPOINTMENT?

CAN YOU TELL IF IT’S A BOY OR GIRL?
We can indicate the sex of your baby as long as the baby is in a good position. Certain factors such as umbilical cord, legs crossed can prevent the technician from getting a good view. We recommend you follow up with your doctor for confirmation of the sex.

We don’t want any mistakes!
