Basic concepts to understand what is Hi Mom 4D Studio

Sure, we know, the name can be a bit confusing. What’s with all the 3D-4D-HD talk?
Don’t worry, it only sounds complicated but is really simple. Here we will explain as clearly as we can.

A prenatal ultrasound (also called a sonogram) is a noninvasive diagnostic test that uses sound waves to create a visual image of your baby and organs. Here at Hi Mom 4D Studio we focus on showing you your baby’s features and gender because our services are just for entertainment purposes and not for medical use.

During the test, one of our ultrasound technicians (sonographer) will transmit high-frequency sound waves through your uterus that bounce off your baby. A computer then translates the echoing sounds into video images that reveal your baby’s shape, position, and movements. This procedure is totally inoffensive to you and your baby.

The traditional ultrasound technology is 2D (“D” standing for dimension) like what you receive at your doctor’s office. In 2D, high frequency, non-ionized sound waves are sent and received in just one plane. The sound waves reflect back a black and white image of the baby.

As technology in the medical field advanced, 3D ultrasound was developed using image volume data acquisition. 3D technology utilizes the same high frequency sound waves as 2D and is just as safe to use. The sound waves create reflections from different angles to each other; the ultrasound machine then integrates these reflections with its high-speed computing software, resulting in a 3-dimensional image. 3D technology is used at elective facilities to give you a life-like view of your baby and see he/she in finite detail.

Finally, 4D is 3D technology with the addition of real time. Meaning that while the ultrasound is being performed, you are watching your baby LIVE, and it can be recorded.

And at last, most of you know that HD stands for “High Definition”, a technology that offers a more crisp, clear, defined image.
