The importance of 4D USG in monitoring the baby in the womb


Ultrasound imaging is a diagnostic imaging method that is widely used to examine organs, soft tissue, and blood flow. Ultrasound devices, which have been in the service of modern medicine since the early 1970s, have become an indispensable part of pregnancy monitoring today. Especially the developments in computer technologies and industrial fields have increased the image quality in these devices and it continues to increase day by day. Ultrasound has proven safe over the years of widespread clinical use.
Types of Ultrasound
2D Ultrasound (2d Ultrasound)
They are the most commonly used standard (“conventional”) ultrasounds in practice, which have width and length dimensions but no depth dimensions, allowing tissues to be imaged on a plane.
3D ultrasound (3d Ultrasound)
They are devices that allow a region to be viewed in 3D by adding the depth dimension of a region after a 2-dimensional scan, which is normally done in standard ultrasound devices. However, converting a 2D image to 3D takes some time (like 10-15 minutes).
4D Ultrasound (4d Ultrasound)
They are the latest technological products that allow simultaneous display of a 3D view including width, length and depth dimensions on a monitor. With high image quality, all limbs and movements of your baby can be observed very clearly and quickly in four-dimensional ultrasound. While the movements of the babies in the womb can be viewed with a delay with the examinations made with three-dimensional ultrasound devices before, the movements of the baby such as frowning, laughing, yawning, finger sucking can be monitored instantly and quickly with the 4-dimensional ultrasonography. 4D ultrasound is very effective in detailed disability screening of the fetus in the womb and has an important place in the diagnosis and diagnosis of the following issues:

Determining the baby’s gender at an earlier period (14 weeks) (also depends on the position)
Developmental analysis of the baby
Detailed evaluation of multiple pregnancies
Diagnosis of structural problems of the uterus
Detection of anomalies that may occur in the placenta
Diagnosing the causes of abnormal bleeding
Diagnosis of ectopic (ectopic) pregnancy
Diagnosis of ovarian tumors, cysts, polyps and fibroids
Determination of the location (localization) of the placenta
It is the formation of emotional bonds that are normally expected to be established after birth, when expectant mothers and fathers see the real appearance of their unborn babies.
