Ultrasound, also known as sonography, is a non-invasive imaging technique that utilises high-frequency sound waves to generate real-time images of the internal structures of the body. It has been widely used in medical settings for decades, and when it comes to monitoring the growth and well-being of your baby, ultrasound is an invaluable tool.
Modern machines like ours are capable of 5D or HD Live scans that offer much higher resolution and frame rates thanks to specialised software. We are able to make prints from these for you for a lasting memento.
The process of ultrasound begins with a transducer, a small handheld device that emits and receives sound waves. To ensure optimal contact with the skin, a gel is applied to the abdomen, creating a smooth surface for the transducer to glide across. When the transducer is placed on the skin, it emits sound waves that travel through the body and bounce back when they encounter different tissues. These returning sound waves are then converted into images by a computer, providing us with a clear picture of your baby's development.
Our qualified, registered & highly skilled and compassionate sonographer at Baby Scan Studio will guide you through the process, ensuring your comfort and addressing any concerns you may have. They will carefully manoeuvre the transducer, capturing images from various angles to provide a comprehensive view of your baby. The entire procedure is painless, safe, and free from radiation, making it a preferred choice for prenatal imaging.
Baby scans using ultrasound offer numerous benefits for both you and your little one. Firstly, they provide a unique opportunity for parents to witness their baby's growth and development in real time. From the first trimester, when the heartbeat can be detected, to the second and third trimesters, when facial features, limb movements, and even expressions become visible, every scan brings new insights into the miracle of life.
In addition to the emotional connection, ultrasound scans also serve as vital medical tools. They allow our sonographer to assess the baby's growth, monitor the position of the placenta, and identify any potential abnormalities or complications. By detecting these issues early on, appropriate medical interventions can be implemented to ensure the well-being of both mother and baby.
