Colur Doppler measures blood flow in the umbilical vein wheras 4 d is seeingvur baby in real time. It's a gimmick. Colour Doppler is useful

Hi, 4D USG detects all structural anomalies while color Doppler detects outrightly vascular problems, and both can be done in one sitting. For down syndrome nuchal translucence, long bone length, major structural defect are to be looked for.
