Babys Debut 3d imaging Utica, NY


In a recent news investigation by Hawaii News Now reporter Stephanie Lum questions a 3D image provider and Dr. Angela Pratt who basically concludes that if all the precautions of a traditional 2D images are used, such as keeping the intensity of the exposure as well as the time of the exposure under control then there doesn't seem to be any risks involved with the 3D imaging.

Clinical use of this technology is an area of intense research activity especially in fetal anomaly scanning but there are also popular uses that have been shown to improve fetal-maternal bonding. 4D fetal ultrasounds are similar to 3D scans, with the difference associated with time: 4D allows a 3-dimensional picture in real time, rather than delayed, due to the lag associated with the computer constructed image, as in classic 3-dimensional ultrasound.


If the system is used only in the Obstetrics Application, the ultrasound energy is limited by the manufacturer below FDA limits for obstetrical ultrasound, whether scanning 2, 3 or 4 dimensions. (The FDA limit for obstetrical ultrasound is 94 mW/cm2)

"Studies suggest that 3D and 4D ultrasounds are safe. 3D and 4D ultrasounds are optional. They're not a standard prenatal test. Doctors often give them as a courtesy to women who want them." ( As long as the same precautions are taken and the person conducting the ultrasound are licensed professionals then there is no evidence that the 3D or 4D ultrasounds are any different than the same 2D ultrasounds, which are conducted as a preventative measure with no reason to believe there is anything wrong with the baby being photographed.
