Is a 3D scan better than a 2D scan?

In short, no. 3D scanning is mainly used to generate pictures of baby's face, hands etc for 'bonding' purposes. High quality 2D scanning gives much more precise information about the baby's organs-for example the heart, brain, kidneys etc. 3D technology simply doesn't help in these circumstances. 3D scanning in specilist fetal medicine centers can however give very uesful information-for example about baby's face if a cleft palate is suspected, or baby's spine if there is a spinal defect.
