3D Ultrasound Frequently Asked Questions
How many weeks in to pregnancy is optimal for 3D ultrasound viewing?
For the Pink or Blue Gender Assessment, you will need to be at least twenty weeks in to your pregnancy and have previously completed your routine diagnostic ultrasound. For our Signature Fetal Tour, we suggest being between 25 – 31 weeks in to your pregnancy. If you’re expecting twins, we suggest being 23 – 26 weeks along in your pregnancy. The latest we are able to perform your 3D ultrasound session is 34 weeks. Please read our 3D/4D ultrasound tips before coming in.
What is included in the CD, DVD and Printed Image Upgrade?
The Visao Upgrade is everything you’ll need to remember your 3D ultrasound experience. Your CD of images includes between thirty and seventy JPEG images that are easy to share online and email to friends. The DVD video includes a thirty minute live recording of your 3D ultrasound session; we’ll provide background music for the DVD or you can bring in your own music on an MP3 player or CD to record for the session. The two printed images are similar to what you may have seen during your routine diagnostic ultrasound, but Som Visao prints yours in 3D.
Will I be with a Sonographer for the session?
Yes! Som Visao only employs experienced ultrasound technicians carrying either ARDMS or CARDUP certifications. Our technicians have worked in a range of ultrasound settings in both public and private facilities and are well versed in the 3D application.
