Experience Remarkable Fetal Imaging with the Voluson® Expert 22 Ultrasound System

The Voluson® Expert 22 from GE Healthcare represents the cutting edge in 3D/4D obstetric ultrasound, empowering sonographers to capture incredibly detailed views of the developing fetus. This advanced system sets the standard for fetal anatomy scans and bonding scans across the United Kingdom.

With HDliveTM rendering, the Voluson Expert 22 creates realistic 3D/4D views of your baby in the womb. Using sophisticated algorithms, HDliveTM converts conventional 2D greyscale images into high-resolution 3D/4D, creating depth and texture for unparalleled realism. The incredible level of anatomical detail allows expectant parents to see baby’s features and movements clearly.

Additional Voluson innovations like Tomographic Ultrasound Imaging (TUI) and SonoVCAD heart further enhance visualisation capabilities. TUI mimics the slice-by-slice imaging of MRI to improve diagnostic confidence in detecting fetal anomalies. SonoVCAD heart utilises intelligent navigation to optimise both 2D and 4D imaging of fetal cardiac structures.

Our skilled sonographers utilise the Voluson Expert 22’s multitude of tools to capture both medically necessary images and bonding photos that expectant parents will treasure. The system’s sensitivity and high resolution are ideal for detailed anomaly screening and follow-up diagnosis.

At London Pregnancy Clinic, we are dedicated to providing expectant mothers with the most advanced fetal imaging available. Discover how the remarkable Voluson Expert 22 can create lasting memories of your baby before birth.

Is 3D/4D Ultrasound harmful for my baby?

3D/4D Ultrasound is Completely Safe for Your Developing Baby

Expectant mothers often wonder if the amazing 3D and 4D ultrasound images provided by advanced systems like the GE Voluson Expert 22 are safe for the fetus. Rest assured, there is an abundance of scientific evidence confirming 3D/4D ultrasound causes no harm to the developing baby when performed correctly by trained professionals.

Ultrasound technology relies on high-frequency soundwaves to produce images, not radiation like X-rays or CT scans. Numerous large clinical studies have found no linkage between ultrasound and adverse effects on fetal growth, birth weight, vision, hearing or neurological development.

Professional organisations like BMUS (British Medical Ultrasound Society) emphasise the safety of both 2D and 3D fetal ultrasound. The FDA also considers obstetric ultrasonography very low risk when used prudently by qualified practitioners.

Our clinicians at London Pregnancy Clinic are highly experienced medical professionals, registered with the the relevant industry bodies. They follow BMUS safety guidelines, keeping exposure times short and operating at lowest power levels to obtain diagnostically satisfactory images. Thermal indexing is carefully monitored.

While 3D/4D ultrasound provides expectant parents with incredible views of their baby in the womb, rest assured it is completely safe for fetal development when performed by our qualified team. The amazing bonding experience far outweighs any negligible risks. Discover worry-free 3D/4D scanning with London Pregnancy Clinic.

When 2D Ultrasound Excels Over 3D for Fetal Scanning

While 3D ultrasound generates remarkable life-like views of the fetus, conventional 2D imaging remains vital for many aspects of prenatal screening and diagnosis. Our expert sonographers at London Pregnancy Clinic strategically utilise both 2D and 3D ultrasound modalities to optimise fetal scans.

2D ultrasonography remains the preferred choice for capturing many standard biometric measurements critical for dating the pregnancy and assessing fetal growth. This includes crown-rump length, biparietal diameter, head circumference, abdominal circumference and femur length. The linear array probes used in 2D imaging acquire the sharp, precise images needed for accurate caliper placement.

Assessing fetal presentation and position is also best achieved via 2D ultrasound. Visualising the location of the placenta, amniotic fluid and cervix is more straightforward in 2D mode. Color Doppler 2D imaging further enhances evaluation of fetal and umbilical cord blood flow.

During anomaly screening, 2D ultrasound allows rapid structural survey of fetal anatomy in multiple planes. While 3D is beneficial as an adjunct, 2D provides the resolution and field-of-view required for thorough examination of organs and structures.

Our sonographers expertly capture all required 2D images before switching to 3D/4D mode to acquire souvenir keepsake photos for expectant parents to enjoy. The combination of advanced 2D and 3D fetal imaging provides comprehensive evaluation to support maternal health and pregnancy care.


3D ultrasound was invented back in the 1980’s, about 20 years after the ‘standard’ 2D ultrasound cam into use. Since then, the technology has come a long way, and we are now able to generate incredibly detailed images of the fetus in the womb!

3D ultrasound is a medical imaging technique that uses high-frequency sound waves to produce detailed three-dimensional images of the inside of the human body. It is similar to traditional ultrasound, but instead of producing a two-dimensional image, it creates a three-dimensional image by taking a series of scans from different angles and using computer processing to combine them into a single image.

During a 3D ultrasound, the patient lies on a table and a handheld device called a transducer is placed on the skin above the area being examined. The transducer sends out high-frequency sound waves that bounce off the internal organs and tissues and return to the transducer. These echoes are then used to create an image of the inside of the body on a computer screen.

3D ultrasound is often used to visualize the developing fetus during pregnancy, as well as to examine organs and tissues in the abdomen, pelvis, and chest. It can be used to diagnose a variety of conditions, such as abnormalities in fetal development, tumours, and abdominal pain.

What are baby bonding scans?

Seeing their baby on the ultrasound screen for the first time is an incredibly emotional moment for expectant parents. 3D and 4D fetal imaging takes this experience to the next level by enabling mum and dad to bond with their little one before birth.

3D ultrasound creates a three-dimensional, life-like representation of the fetus in the womb. 4D ultrasound takes things even further by adding motion and real-time viewing. Parents can watch their baby yawning, sucking their thumb, and moving about in remarkable detail.

This creates a deeply personal connection between parents and baby. Seeing their child’s features in such realistic depth helps expectant mums and dads feel more attached to the little life they’ve created but not yet met.

Our specialist ultrasound practitioners at London Pregnancy Clinic recognise the immense value of this prenatal bonding. We provide a relaxed environment to capture mesmerising 3D and 4D images for parents to cherish.
