Extensive studies over 60 years have found that Ultrasound has not been shown to cause any harm to mother or baby.
Routine scanning of all pregnancies is now normal throughout the United States. In 3D/4D/5D/HD scanning exactly the same type and intensity of Ultrasound is used as with conventional 2D scanning. 3D/4D/5D/HD Ultrasound both utilize sound waves to look inside the body. The technology is similar to radar. A probe placed on the body emits sound waves into the body, listens for the return echo and generates an image. 3D/4D/5D/HD Ultrasound will be similar to a conventional scan in terms of exposure.
