3D Obstetric Ultrasound in Illinois

3D obstetric ultrasound is an advanced imaging technique used to visualize the developing fetus in three dimensions. It provides expectant parents with a more detailed and realistic view of their baby’s features and structures in the womb. This technology offers a unique opportunity for parents to bond with their unborn child and allows healthcare providers to assess fetal anatomy in a more enhanced way.

What are XRAY, MRI, CT and Ultrasound?

  • XRAY is a test that uses radiation to produce images of the bones and teeth. It is fast and accessible, but it does not show soft tissues or subtle bone injuries.
  • MRI is a test that uses radio waves and magnets to produce images of the soft tissues, nerves and blood vessels. It does not use radiation, but it is more specialized and may take longer than XRAY. It is excellent for diagnosing sports injuries and musculoskeletal conditions.
  • CT is a test that uses radiation to produce images of the bones, soft tissues, organs and blood vessels. It is similar to XRAY, but it shows more detail and can create three-dimensional images. It may use a contrast dye to highlights certain parts of the body.
  • Ultrasound is a test that uses sound waves to produce images of the organs and structures. It does not use radiation, but it my not show as much detail as MRI or CT.  It is often used for breast, gynecological, cardiac and musculoskeletal imaging.
X-RAY, MRI and CT are different types of medical imaging tests that help doctors diagnose various conditions. X-RAY uses beams of electromagnetic waves to produce two-dimensional images of the tissues based on their density1. MRI uses strong magnetic fields and radio waves to produce detailed images of the soft tissues, nerves and blood vessels based on their proton levels12. CT uses X-ray beams to produce two-dimensional and three-dimensional images of the tissues based on their density31.
