Three‐dimensional (3D) ultrasound is gaining popularity in prenatal diagnosis. While there are no studies regarding the safety of 3D ultrasound, it is now widely performed in non‐medical facilities, for non‐diagnostic purposes. The present study was aimed at comparing the acoustic output, as expressed by thermal index (TI) and mechanical index (MI), of conventional two‐dimensional (2D) and 3D/4D ultrasound during pregnancy. 
First‐trimester sonography: Is the fetus exposed to high levels of acoustic energy?
TLDR
The goal of this study was to characterize the acoustic output of clinical ultrasound instruments, as expressed by TI and MI, during routine first‐trimester sonographic examinations. Expand
Bioeffects and Safety of 2D and 3D/4D Ultrasound in Obstetrics—Is there a Place for "Parental Bonding" Scans?
TLDR
The general knowledge in this area of ultrasound is poor and an effort should be made to educate the end- users. Expand
A symposium on obstetrical ultrasound: is all this safe for the fetus?
TLDR
Data collected during routine ultrasound examinations show that "gray-scale" B-mode ultrasound is associated with a negligible rise in TI, however, Doppler studies show significantly higher levels of TI, which can reach 1.5 and above. Expand
Evaluation of the Scan Duration and Mechanical and Thermal Indices Applied for the Diagnostic Ultrasound Examinations
TLDR
Evaluating the scan duration, TI, and MI as measures of acoustic output during ultrasound studies concluded that the reported ultrasound scans were safe. Expand
EVALUATION OF THE EFFECT OF COMBINED 2D/4D ULTRASOUND ON FETAL HEART RATE CHANGES
TLDR
Four-dimensional ultrasonography has no effect on fetal heart as an indicator for maternal heart rate after combined two- and 4-dimensional ultrasound, according to this study. Expand
Acoustic Output as Measured by Thermal and Mechanical Indices and its Bio-effect During Ultrasound Scanning in Obstetrics
While ultrasound (US) is supposed to be totally safe, it is a form of energy. Diagnostic ultrasound (DUS) has the prospect to have effects on living tissues it crosses, such as bio-effects. The twoExpand
Acoustic Output as Measured by Thermal and Mechanical Indices during Fetal Nuchal Translucency Ultrasound Examinations
TLDR
Acoustic exposure levels during NT ultrasound examination, as expressed by thermal index (TI) and mechanical index (MI), are generally low. Expand
First Trimester Study of Fetal Heart with 4D Echocardiography
The following chapter discusses the added value of various novel 3- and 4-Dimensional Ultrasound (3D/4D US) applications for assessing fetal cardiac anomalies at the first trimester of pregnancy.Expand
Ultrasound imaging of the early fetus: is it safe?
TLDR
All epidemiological studies published so far are based on information obtained with pre-1992 machines, when acoustic intensities for fetal use of ultrasound instruments were allowed to be increased by a factor of almost eight. Expand
Ultrasound in the First Trimester and Earlier: How to Keep It Safe
TLDR
To guarantee safety, education of the end-users is vital on precautions to limit the possible hazards of exposure of the follicles/ova and the fetus at early stages of gestation, and DUS should be used only when medically indicated. Expand

OC033: Acoustic output as measured by mechanical and thermal indices during routine obstetrical ultrasound
TLDR
In lissencephaly, the most common prenatal US finding is ventriculomegaly, and familiarity with the normal US patterns of fetal cortical development can lead to the early suspicion of lissiaphally, which would warrant further investigations including MRI. Expand
