Ultrasound is a pain free procedure and the patient will not feel any discomfort. More importantly, sonogram is completely safe for the unborn child. With the use of sonogram, radiologists can detect a tubal pregnancy in the early stages and take the appropriate measures to ensure the mother’s safety.
4D Ultrasounds are also useful in detecting multiple pregnancies; allowing both the doctor and the parents adequate time to prepare. It is now possible to uncover birth defects early on.
4D Ultrasounds are also used to detect a number of problems within the human body. They can be useful in identifying the cause of pelvic bleeding, uncovering menstrual problems, identifying cysts and even locating cancerous cells. Sonograms are also useful when treating and diagnosing prostate cancers in men.
Sonograms require little preparation depending on the area to be examined. Patients undergoing an abdominal 4d ultrasound may be asked to avoid food or drink for a number of hours beforehand to allow for better examination of the stomach.
Pregnant women are often required to drink lots of water before a sonogram to allow a clearer view of the fetus.
Above all, it’s important to remember is that a diagnostic ultrasound is routine, safe and painless. It is natural to feel a little nervous beforehand but you’ll probably wonder what you were so worried about 4D ultrasounds when it’s over.
