The ultrasound technology is particularly effective and affordable for viewing an unborn child in a pregnant woman, in a procedure known as a sonogram. About 80% of women considering having an abortion change their mind and keep their child after viewing an ultrasound of him or her. Modern ultrasounds have the ability to acquire images in 3D & 4D.
