A10. There are four factors decide the high quality outcome for 5D ultrasound
1. Machine Technology
2. Skill of operator
3. Position of Baby
4. Amount of amiontic fluid
We possesses the first two factors and we have technique to turn the baby to best possible position. However, the amount of amniotic fluid is uncontrollable by us and it’s a last factor contributing to a not so satisfactory result sometimes.

Q17. Do I need to drink water when I come?
A17. Yes, 600ml one hour before the apointment. It helps to prepare better windows to see the gender and baby's face. But it is not compulsory. Having A fizzy drink or chocolate bar before appointment will help to make baby more active to obtain better images.
Q18. How much time is supposed to spent on gender scan and 3D/4D baby ultrasound scan?
A18. Time allocation for each package is listed at ‘ packages’ column. Different packages offer different time spent. But we endeavor to provide best and clearest 5D images and accurate early gender scan. If 5D outcome is non satisfactory, free rescan will be scheduled.
Q19. Why are you so confident to find out gender this early whereas we heard at many occasion it is not accurate?
A19. It is because we have extensive gender scanning experiences. For example, protruding part does not always mean a boy, it can be a swollen clitoris. And three bright lines does not always mean it is a girl as it can be seen at boy at times at early genitalia development. Only through the vast experience, the sonographer can determine accurately which one is which, same to nub theory. A flat line can be seen on boy and sticking out can be a girl with swollen clitoris.
Q20. I have never heard of 5D scan in my life. What is that?
A20. This is patented technology used by Samsung Ultrasound which is equivalent to HD live by GE. But we would claim 5D has better technology compared to HD live. 5D ultrasound has been very popular in women ultrasound in many countries lately.
Q21. Do you have female sonographer?
A21. No, we have only male sonographer. If due to religious reason, we are happy to have full cover on the tummy with towel with least exposure as possible and no internal scan will be performed.
