How Is a 4D Well-being scan in Leicester Different from a 2D Scan?

by Jessica Roberts Self Employed
A 4D Well-being scan in Leicester provides an image of the baby within the womb using sound waves. The scans are non-invasive and have no known adverse effects on mothers or infants. They may be performed at any stage of pregnancy. Discuss any concerns you have with your midwife, GP, or obstetrician.

While having a scan during pregnancy is often a pleasant experience, keep in mind that ultrasound scans may uncover certain significant health issues, so be prepared.
 
 
What will occur during the scan?

  • The majority of scans are performed by sonographers. The scan is performed in a dimly lit room to allow the sonographer to get clear pictures of your baby.
  • You will be instructed to lay on your back and expose your stomach.
  • The sonographer will apply ultrasonic gel to your stomach to ensure that the machine makes excellent contact with your skin.
  • The sonographer will slide a probe over your stomach and an ultrasound screen will provide an image of the baby.
  • Throughout the test, sonographers must maintain a screen posture that provides a clear view of the infant.
  • The sonographer will do a thorough examination of your baby's body. The sonographer may need to gently push on your belly in order to get the greatest images of the baby.
 
How long will it take to do a scan?

If obtaining a satisfactory picture proves challenging, the scan may take longer or must be repeated at a later time.
 
When are scans available?

In England, hospitals provide at least two ultrasound scans during pregnancy: between ten and fourteen weeks and between the ages of 18 and 21 weeks

The first scan is also referred to as the dating scan. The sonographer calculates the expected date of delivery (EDD) for your baby based on the baby's measurements.
If you opt to undergo this screening, the dating scan may include a nuchal translucency (NT) scan as part of the combined screening test for Down's syndrome.

The second scan provided during pregnancy is typically scheduled between weeks 18 and 21. It is sometimes referred to as the mid-pregnancy scan. This scan examines your baby for 11 physical abnormalities.

Depending on your health and the stage of your pregnancy, you may be given more than two scans. You may learn more about the 12-week dating scan and the 20-week or mid-pregnancy scan by visiting their websites.
