3D Ultrasound in Miami

Patient talking to her OB/GYN. Looking at test results.

Ultrasounds have come a long way. Unlike the grainy and two-dimensional images that traditional ultrasounds show, 3D ultrasounds can give you so much more! Here’s everything you need to know before getting your 3D ultrasound.

What’s a 3D Ultrasound?

Like the traditional two-dimensional ultrasound, 3D ultrasounds use high-frequency sound waves and special imaging software to create images of your baby’s soft tissues, organs, and other anatomy. However, 3D ultrasounds produce much sharper, clearer images of your baby, allowing you to see an even more accurate image. You can see your baby’s unique features, like their face shape and their nose!


Another great part about 3D ultrasounds is that they’re performed like any other ultrasound. First, the doctor or technician will rub gel on your belly and then move a transducer across the area. The transducer directs the sound waves toward your uterus and the baby inside it, giving you a picture of your developing baby. 

What Are the Benefits of 3D Ultrasounds?

Because the images are much sharper and clearer in a 3-D ultrasound, your doctor can see more details, allowing them to spot any health issues your developing baby may have. 


“When used in conjunction with a 2D ultrasound, 3D ultrasonography can aid in the earlier diagnosis of many potential defects, including cleft lip or cleft palate, other craniofacial abnormalities, neural tube defects like spina bifida, and skeletal malformations.” 

—Michele Hakakha, M.D., OB-GYN in Beverly Hills

Your Wellness Is Of The Utmost Importance To Us

Because 3D ultrasounds can give you a much better look at your baby’s face, this makes pregnancies even more exciting for the parents, allowing them to develop an even stronger bond with their baby.

When Should I Get a 3D Ultrasound?  

Pregnant women can get a 3D ultrasound at any point in their pregnancy, as well as the traditional, two-dimensional ultrasound. Often, medical professionals prefer conducting them between approximately 24 and 34 weeks, after the baby has developed significantly. At this point in the pregnancy, there’s also less risk that fluid or positioning in the pelvis will block results.

Just as with traditional ultrasounds, a 3D ultrasound involves no radiation or x-rays, and it’s totally safe for both you and your baby. Always make sure you’re getting any medical procedures done by doctors and medical professionals, especially when pregnant.

3D Ultrasound Cost | Miami

Because every insurance provider is different and not all provide the same coverage, your provider may not cover it unless your OB/GYN or healthcare professional specifically recommends it for further testing and monitoring any issues your baby may have. Because two-dimensional ultrasounds still give your doctor a good look at your baby’s progression, you likely won’t get a 3D ultrasound recommendation from your doctor.

At our center, you are in some of the best, most qualified hands in the field.

Before getting a 3D ultrasound, check with your provider to see how much you would have to cover on your own, if applicable. Remember that insurance providers will never pay for ultrasounds from kiosks or stores at shopping malls or other non-medical venues, which you should avoid anyway.
