Not all clinics have good ultrasound machines. There are a variety of ultrasound machines that can provide different photos and videos with different qualities. The resolution of the.  machine is an important factor. Also, make sure that the machine can provide you with 5D/high definition photos and videos. In order to get the best result, take a look at the sample photos and videos on their galleries. Definitely, each clinic highlights the best of them on their website but still, it can give you a clue about the quality of their work. By taking a look at their gallery you can notice if they provide you with 4D or 5D photos and videos.

4D is the old version, with yellow color photos and videos. 5D is the new version, high-definition skin color ones. In our experience, almost all people prefer 5D to 4D ultrasound. 5D ultrasound doesn’t increase your expenses if the machine is the newer version to do it. 5D has a realistic view and shows more details in the baby’s face, arms, legs, etc.

This is another aspect that you should do due diligence about. The best ultrasound machine in the hands of an inexperienced and unknowledgeable technician is a real waste of resources. Getting a good 5D ultrasound requires a lot of knowledge about anatomy, physiology, and ultrasound physics. As an example, an experienced technician knows about the necessity of enough amniotic fluid and even how to position the pregnant mother to accumulate enough fluid around the area of interest or where to apply the probe to get a better image without exposing the baby to unnecessary power. If the technician has a medical background and has been working in this field for a long time, definitely can get better results.
