Tips for Getting Clear Images During a 4D Ultrasound

When expecting parents book a 4D ultrasound at UBM Scans, it’s often with the hope of capturing clear and memorable images of their baby.

Achieving high-quality images can enhance the bonding experience and provide a precious keepsake.

Here are some expert tips to help ensure you get the best possible images during your 4D ultrasound session.

  1. Schedule at the Optimal Time

Timing is crucial for getting clear images. The best period for a 4D ultrasound is typically between 26 and 32 weeks of pregnancy. During this window, the baby has developed enough fat to provide detailed images, but still has enough room to move around, which enhances image clarity.

  1. Stay Hydrated

Hydration plays a significant role in the quality of ultrasound images. Drinking plenty of water in the days leading up to your appointment can increase the amniotic fluid around your baby, resulting in clearer pictures. Aim to drink at least 8-10 glasses of water per day.

  1. Eat a Light Snack

Having a light snack before your ultrasound can help make your baby more active during the session. Natural sugars found in fruits or a small juice can encourage movement, which might help in capturing better images.

  1. Wear Comfortable Clothing

Choose loose-fitting, comfortable clothing for your appointment. This will not only make you feel more at ease but also make it easier for the ultrasound technician to perform the scan without any obstructions.

  1. Relax and Enjoy the Experience

Feeling relaxed and comfortable can positively impact the session. Take deep breaths and try to enjoy the moment. A calm and stress-free environment can sometimes help in getting better images.

  1. Baby’s Position Matters

The position of your baby plays a significant role in the quality of the images. If your baby is facing your back or has their hands in front of their face, it might be challenging to get clear images. Sometimes a gentle walk or changing positions during the scan can encourage the baby to move.

  1. Trust the Professionals

Our experienced sonographers at UBM Scans have over 15 years of experience and know various techniques to improve the chances of capturing clear images. Trust their expertise and follow their guidance during the session.
