Entertainment Pregnancy Ultrasounds
2D, 3D and 4D Imaging

Home >> 3D Ultrasound

Blayney Ultrasound is proud to offer the ONLY 3D/4D ultrasound service in Central West NSW that does not require a referral! All of our 3D scans are performed by a qualified sonographer who prides herself on superior image quality and patient care.

Our 3D scans are for entertainment purposes only and are not diagnostic. They do not replace your routine diagnostic obstetric ultrasounds that your doctor requests. As they are only for entertainment, they are not covered by Medicare or health funds and do not require a referral. 

When is the best time to have my 3D scan?

28-30 weeks is the best time for 3D imaging of baby’s face. 16-18 weeks is the best time for 2D/3D imaging of baby in their full length, particularly if you’d like to see them moving their arms and legs around. Gender can be attempted to be identified from 16 weeks onwards but the later the scan, the more accurate it is likely to be.

What is 3D/4D Ultrasound?

3D ultrasound uses sound waves , like traditional ultrasound, to obtain a volume of data. This information is processed by the ultrasound machine in a different way to create a 3 dimensional image. The image can then be manipulated to remove structures, such as cord, placenta or limbs, to be able to see baby behind them.

 4D ultrasound adds the 4th dimension to a 3D image, time. 4D imaging allows us to watch baby moving in real time, but has a lower resolution with less detail than 3D. 4D imaging is a 3D video.
