What Is The Difference Between 2D, 3D, and 4D Ultrasounds

Getting an ultrasound is one of the most amazing parts of your pregnancy journey as you hear your baby’s heartbeat and see your baby for the first time. At Tiny Hearts 4D Ultrasound Studio, we are passionate about giving expecting parents peace of mind in a calm, clean, and safe setting. Whether it’s early or late-stage pregnancy, we have the technology and expertise to give you a glimpse into what life will be like when your little one arrives.

What Is The Difference Between 2D, 3D, and 4D Ultrasounds

We proudly offer 2D, 3D, and 4D ultrasound packages to fit your specific needs and budget. Let’s look at the differences between the three to give you a better idea of what you will get with each package.


2D Ultrasounds

2D ultrasounds are the most traditional ultrasounds that most are used to seeing. Most people post the black and white image of a baby at the early stage of pregnancy. A 2D ultrasound scan sees right through a baby’s body, so you will not be able to see the internal organs. These ultrasounds are grey and usually provide a blurry outline of the baby, leaving most parents to want to see more.


3D Ultrasounds

A 3D ultrasound is a collection of two-dimensional images converted into 3d photos using computer software. 3D ultrasounds are completely safe and do not require any specialized equipment. 3D ultrasounds offer a better look at fetal heart structures, detect defects, and a better diagnosis of fetal skeletal defects.


4D Ultrasounds

4D ultrasounds are live streaming videos of the images captured in a 3D ultrasound. You will get all of the same great benefits of 3D ultrasounds, but you will also see the motion of the fetal heart wall and valves, blood flow in various vessels, observe the motion of various organs, and you get a video of your future child rather than just an image.
