Our priority at Kamm McKenzie OBGYN is to provide you with outstanding obstetric care during your pregnancy, and assure the health and well being of you and your baby. While most uncomplicated pregnancies only require 2 ultrasounds (a first trimester ultrasound to confirm your due date and an anatomy ultrasound at 19-20 weeks), we are excited to offer you the option of an additional 3D/4D ultrasound at 26-30 weeks gestation. Because this 3D/4D ultrasound is for enjoyment purposes, it is not covered by insurance. This service is only offered to our patients.
3D/4D Ultrasound Package – The price is $155
Our 3D/4D ultrasound begins with a complete evaluation of your baby’s growth with an estimated fetal weight, amniotic fluid index, placenta assessment, and check for presentation. Next, using our state of the art GE Voluson E8 ultrasound machine, our experienced sonographers will capture 2D black & white and 3D/4D color images of your baby. You will be able to watch your baby move, open his/her mouth, yawn, and even suck on his/her fingers (and toes!). Our sonographers are registered in OBGYN and have over 20 years of experience in evaluating prenatal patients.
3D/4D ultrasound may be performed at any time, but the best images are taken between 26-30 weeks gestation because of fetal size, body fat, and amniotic fluid volume. Please keep in mind that 3D/4D ultrasound image quality is limited by your baby’s position in the womb, amniotic fluid, and maternal size.
Our 3D/4D Ultrasound Package is $155 and includes the following:
- 30 minute ultrasound session
- Estimated fetal weight, measurement of amniotic fluid index, placenta assessment and presentation evaluation
- 6-8 black and white 2D photos of your baby
- 8-10 3D/4D color photos of your baby
- USB flash drive containing all of your precious images, ready for printing, Facebook posting, or emailing to family and friends
