Can I just press the 3D button on the ultrasound machine when the doc isn't looking?

Rather than pay to have it done somewhere, I have an ultrasound tomorrow and the machine has a 3-D button

What's the worst that could happen?

  • i've seen some of those 3D ultrasound pictures and they really weren't very impressive. i don't think they're worth the trouble. but, if you are an adrenaline junky, wth, go for it

  • When I got mine done at the doctor's office, it was a button but it was also a different wand.

  • You could get charged. you're not supposed to be touching the equipment. Do you think it's going to go unnoticed when the pictures print out? It won't.

  • Of course I know he'll notice. The different wand thing would be a problem. Really? Sued for touching the medical equipment? Boo on that.

  • It is a different device. Won't work until it's correctly set by the attending worker.

    Nice try though.......

  • um yeah diff test but dont think we havent all thought about it...hell I got a free one from nurse because I told her that was first time my baby was facing forward, and she just did it really fast and printed it out for me. BUT as a pp said, they are kind creepy but also you really can tell on mine that baby looked just like his dad...he was pouting lol.

  • Oh it's not stealing, they have the machine just sitting there all day :)

    I always found the images creepy so i'd never pay for one. I'm just making light of life. One of many fleeting thoughts in my head.
