Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ)
Is 2D/3D/4D Ultrasound safe?
Ultrasound has been used as a diagnostic tool for more than 30 years. Numerous studies have been done with no harm to mother or baby being documented. Reputable and responsible 3D/4D centers limit scanning time to those much less than a typical 2D diagnostic scan. A 3D/4D ultrasound uses the same exact power levels as the conventional 2D ultrasound and the FDA sets the standard level that is safe to be used.
