A 3-D fetal ultrasound can provide images of a baby with photo-quality details. This type of ultrasound is sometimes used to help health care providers to detect facial abnormalities or neural tube defects.

3-D ultrasounds are also available commercially — but the use of fetal ultrasound solely to create keepsakes isn't recommended.
