What are 3D ultrasounds?

While standard 2D ultrasounds provide flat, two-dimensional images of a patient's organs and tissue, a 3D ultrasound is compiled using sound waves returning at different angles.

This allows us to capture three-dimensional images that represent your internal organs more realistically, which makes the images easier to evaluate and understand.

3D ultrasounds are ordered by OB-GYNs and or other specialists when there is a specific medical concern that they need to explore in more depth. They can be used for a wide range of applications, including fetal development issues, cardiology, breast imaging and vascular imaging. 

The 3D Ultrasound Procedure

A 3D ultrasound is performed similar to any other ultrasound – gel is rubbed on your belly or area to be examined, then the technologist will move a transducer across the area. Sound waves bounce off organs and tissue, producing a sharp image of your baby, soft tissues, or organs. 

The difference here is that multiple 2D images are taken at various angles and pieced together to make a three-dimensional rendering. 

  • To me and the other expert radiologists at our clinic, the patients we see are so much more than a diagnosis - each of them comes to us with a unique set of circumstances and needs. We feel honoured to help them understand their condition, address their questions and guide them through the process of finding answers.
    - Dr. Geoff Doherty
