How long does a 4D ultrasound session take?
A 4D ultrasound session, performed by a licensed RDMS sonographer who has enough experience and technical ultrasound ability (both generally, and ultrasound machine-specific expertise) can take just a few minutes to capture great 4D ultrasound photos/images, although this depends on a variety of factors (see above). Very long ultrasound sessions are indications that the ultrasound studio has technical issues or does not have licensed/experienced monographers.
How many times can you get a 4D ultrasound?
Generally, a few times is ok during one pregnancy. Most of our customers come in multiple times – they typically come in for a gender reveal/determination ultrasound and then again for a 4D visit or two.
