Ultrasound has been around for over 50 years. Unlike x-ray, ionizing irradiation is not present in ultrasounds which makes it a favorable and populary modality. Ultrasound is sound waves. 2D ultrasound remains the standard in most diagnostic environments, but 3D ultrasound and 4D ultrasound is now being used for advanced diagnostic purposes and perinatologists, OB/GYN, and elective ultrasound facilities are using it for non-diagnositic purposes as well for its amazing bonding and psychological benefits. According to a publication on the Effect on Maternal Fetal Bonding, 3D ultrasound pictures appear to have a more positive influence on mothers towards their babies and more specifically, mothers who had a 3D ultrasound showed their images to a greater number of people than those only having a 2D ultrasound images. With the invention of 3D/4D ultrasound, both the diagnostic and elective industry and expectant mothers alike find the vivid ultrasound pictures to be an amazing part of a women's pregnancy.
