Ultrasonography (USG) is a non-invasive diagnostic medical technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce images (sonogram) of the internal structures of the body. 4D USG is medical depiction done during the pregnancy period to produce a video of the baby (fetus) in the womb. This procedure is executed to detect physical defects that are unseen in 2D and 3D USG, or done at the request of the patient. It is not recommended that this procedure be performed multiple times, because the fetus will receive too much ultrasonic wave. Awal Bros Hospital has this facility to help doctors increase the quality of pregnancy diagnosis.
Using an ultrasonography, a doctor moves a device called a transducer (probe) over part of your body. The transducer emits sound waves which bounce off the internal tissues, and creates images from the waves that bounce back. USG 4D let you see your baby’s face for the first time. Some doctors like 3D and 4D ultrasounds because they can show certain birth defects, such as cleft palate, that might not show up on a standard ultrasound.
