Ultrasound Services at Albany OB-GYN
Realistic Images Provided by 4D Sonography
Ultrasound has radically changed obstetrics forever. This “window” into the womb has profound social and psychological applications as well. Peering into the baby’s world allows for a whole new appreciation for the miracle unfolding within the mother’s belly. The special bond that is developing is enhanced and made more tangible by the incredibly realistic images provided by 4D sonography.
Albany OB-GYN invites you to step into your baby’s world of wonder. See for the first time 3-dimensional pictures of your child in full motion. Begin your unique bonding experience sooner than you ever thought possible. Begin your baby album….before she’s even born!
Our “Baby Waves” center is available to everyone in the community. Some things to keep in mind when deciding to begin your adventure:
- The 4D sonogram is not an X-ray. It uses the same sound wave principles of the sonograms that have always been used.
- The “Baby Waves” 4D sonogram is in no way intended to replace the traditional 2D sonogram, which is performed at around 20 weeks of pregnancy.
- The 4D sonogram captures a more realistic image of the physical characteristics and appearance of your baby. The 4D imaging is best performed between 24 and 28 weeks of your pregnancy.
- The cost of a 4D ultrasound photo session is not covered by medical insurance.
