State of the Art 3D & 4D Obstetrical Ultrasounds

3D and 4D ultrasounds use sound waves to create an image of the baby in the womb. With 3D ultrasounds, you’ll see a three-dimensional image of your baby. The 4D ultrasound creates a live video effect, where you can even watch the baby smile or yawn. The images can help a physician identify a problem while the baby is still in the womb.

Ultrasounds at MUSC Health Offers Some Unique Benefits

All MUSC ultrasound sites are AIUM Accredited. Accreditation is earned by the American Institute of Ultrasound in Medicine (AIUM). According to AIUM, "Accreditation by the AIUM says that a practice has demonstrated that all of its interpreting physicians meet relevant ultrasound training guidelines, case volume requirements, and continuing ultrasound education; all sonographers are or will become appropriated certified by a specific date; ultrasound equipment is adequately maintained; safeguards are in place to protect patients and staff; ultrasound examinations and reports meet or exceed accepted guidelines for content timelines, and record retention; and there is regular monitoring for quality assurance.”

In addition to accreditation, the MUSC Health perinatal sonographers collaborate on each case with expert maternal fetal medicine physicians and a gynecology ultrasounds physician who specializes in gynecology ultrasound. They also participate in monthly team board meetings in collaboration with maternal fetal medicine physicians, neonatal physicians, genetic counselors, palliative care providers, fetal MRI specialty physician, and pediatric surgery specialist giving our patients the depth of medical experience to ensure the best outcome.
