Private 3D / 4D ultrasound scans

Darent Valley Hospital in conjunction with Mr El-Matary, Consultant Obstetrician Gynaecologist is now offering private 3D/4D scans. Using new ultrasound technology it is possible to obtain lifelike images of the unborn baby in 3 and 4 dimensions (4D is moving 3D).  These images are very popular with parents as they provide easily recognisable images of their baby’s face in particular which they can share with family and friends. Smiling, yawning and sucking is often seen depending on how awake or asleep the baby is.


We offer 3/4D imaging as an additional component to either a detailed scan or a fetal growth and wellbeing scan. A report from the scan is produced as usual. It is also possible to book a 3D/4D studio scan with or without identification of the baby’s gender.

When is the best time to have a 3D/4D Scan?

The best time to do a 3/4D scan is between 22 and 30 weeks.

What is cost of the scan?

The cost of the 3D/4D Scans is £162.00, this includes a CD or DVD with all still and moving images (moving image only available if baby moves).
