New ultrasound company offers ‘real time’ 4D foetal imaging

Innervision, the west’s 4D ultrasound specialist clinic, offers expectant parents the opportunity to see their baby. State of the art 4D ultrasound technology provides live recording of the baby from within the womb. The 3D images are captured in real time to produce 4D footage which can be recorded onto a DVD.

An ultrasound scan obtains pictures from inside the body using sound waves. The high frequency sound is transmitted through the skin and reflected by the body. These 'echoes' form a picture on the screen, and no special preparation is necessary for the examination. In obstetrics, the ultrasound is an essential imaging tool used to clearly visualise the foetus in the womb.
