What is 4 - dimensional ultrasound? What is the best time to do it ?Among the services offered in the prenatal diagnosis unit EGOM group is 4D ultrasound. It is very important to many couples because it helps them strengthen and increase the bond with your child. It is a very nice ultrasound, you can see the baby's face, his movements, his gestures, some other body parts sometimes. And, really, it is a moment of great satisfaction for the mother and for the father.

What distinguishes this center?Make the difference with us is that it is a 4D ultrasound not only emotional but what we call complete ultrasound. It is made by an expert gynecologist in prenatal diagnosis and fetal medicine, and also parameters such as growth, the amount of amniotic fluid and other, that ensure fetal well-being are studied. We are also four attempts to make images two one day and two other, without incurring an increase in the price of the same. And finally we fortunately Voluson E8 an ultrasound machine with the latest technology, including 4D Live, which is a way that still gives more realistic images.In the EGOM group, in our fetal medicine unit, we recommend performing this ultrasound between 26 and 28 weeks because we think it is when images are beautiful and there is enough room for us to obtain satisfactory images.
