A 3D or 4D ultrasound can be carried out at any stage of the pregnancy but the optimal time is between 26 and 32 weeks.
No GP referral is required and appointments are generally available at short notice Our 3D and 4D ultrasound scans are carried out by our specialist midwife sonographers.
Musculoskeletal ultrasound scanning is particularly useful for demonstrating causes of pain, muscle and tendon tears.
It's used to produce images of muscles, tendons, ligaments and joints throughout the body.
Established in 2006, My Ultra Healthcare originally offered glowing expectant parents the amazing opportunity to see lifelike pictures of their baby.
Over the years, we've grown exponentially and now offer first class healthcare and a wide variety of ultrasound scanning.
This is because the full bladder pushes the womb up so it is in a position that is easier to scan.
You may need a full bladder for a bladder scan too.
These include stones, infections, tumours, congenital and prostate abnormalities.
But for particular scans, you may be asked not to eat or drink for about 6 hours beforehand.
If you are having your womb scanned, you will probably be asked to come to the appointment with a full bladder.
Pulses of ultrasound are sent from the probe through the skin into your body.
The ultrasound waves then echo (‘bounce back’) from the various structures in the body.
Like other ultrasound scans during your pregnancy, 3D and 4D ultrasound scans use sound waves to create an image of your baby in your womb.
