Dr. J. David Edwards provides comprehensive care, including ultrasound services, to women in and around Santa Monica, CA. As a board-certified OB/GYN practitioner with more than 30 years experience, Dr. Edwards utilizes the most technically advanced ultrasound services, such as 2D and 3D ultrasound.
“Ultrasound services” is an umbrella term for a variety of tools that use sound waves to gather information about the human body. Ultrasound services include machines that produce two- and three-dimensional images of soft tissue, including images of a baby developing inside his mother’s womb. Ultrasound is non-invasive and does not expose the mother or baby to radiation.
Two-dimensional, or 2D, ultrasound is the traditional and most commonly used ultrasound service. 2D ultrasound produces flat, two-dimensional black and white pictures of the baby to assess gestation, growth, heartbeat, development and size. Dr. J. David Edwards uses 2D ultrasound between the 18th and 20th week of pregnancy to confirm or diagnose pregnancy, determine the number of embryos present, check for physical abnormalities and estimate the period of gestation.
3D ultrasound captures three-dimensional images of the baby, including specific facial features. 3D images can also help Dr. Edwards spot anomalies indicating genetic problems.
