USG/3D Colour Doppler


This painless test is by applying a probe to the outside of the abdomen, or by inserting a diagnostic instrument into the vagina. High-frequency sound waves produce pictures that reveal information. The pelvic organs (uterus and ovaries) can be examined in detail and both normal and or problem pregnancies can be monitored. Abnormalities including cysts, tumors and infections seen, cyclical development of the ovarian follicles and uterine lining can be monitored.


3-D ultrasound can furnish us with a 3 dimensional image of what we are scanning. The transducer takes a series of images, thin slices, of the subject, and the computer processes these images and presents them as a 3 dimensional image. Using computer controls, the operator can obtain views that might not be available using ordinary 2-D ultrasound scan. 3-dimensional ultrasound is quickly moving out of the research and development stages and is now widely employed in a clinical setting. It too, is very much in the News. Faster and more advanced commercial models are coming into the market. The scans requires special probes and software to accumulate and render the images, and the rendering time has been reduced from minutes to fractions of a seconds.
A good 3-D image is often very impressive to the parents. Further 2-D scans may be extracted from 3-D blocks of scanned information. Volumetric measurements are more accurate and both doctors and parents can better appreciate a certain abnormality or the absence of a certain abnormality in a 3-D scan than a 2-D one and there is the possibility of increasing psychological bonding between the parents and the baby
