Ultrasound uses soundwaves to create a 3D ultrasound image of the body. 3D ultrasound creates real-time 3D images and can even show motion such as a fetus moving on a fetal ultrasound, or blood flowing during a vascular ultrasound of the carotid arteries. Ultrasound is safe, and very fast, usually about 15-30 minutes per exam. When the 3D images are recorded to create a movie this is called 4D ultrasound.

Also, when the 3D images are displayed to show a face, for instance in a fetal ultrasound, this is also called 4D ultrasound.

At SimonMed Imaging we use the latest in advanced 3D and 4D ultrasound technology which features near ultrasound transducers, hardware and post-processing software for better quality high resolution images. SimonMed Imaging is also pioneering work in automated 3D breast ultrasound from Siemens (ABVS) and GE (ABUS) that can create ultra-high resolution breast images that can be reconstructed in multiple planes to evaluate for breast cancer. We also use other advanced technology such as elastography with which we can quantitate liver stiffness and calculate abnormal tissue in the liver in patients with liver disease.
