  • 3D and 4D mean the same thing. If you google 3d ultrasound and then 4d ultrasound, you'll see both of them with the same kinds of pictures. This type of ultrasound usually has more color and detail that your average black and white sonogram. I never got a 3D ultrasound. Good luck!

  • From what I understand, a 4D is the same as a 3D, only they record it so you have a video to play back, not just isolated pictures.
