Question: What is an 4DV File?

Have you found, downloaded or received an 4DV file, but don't know which software program is required to open it?

Before attempting to open an 4DV file, you'll need to determine what kind of file you are dealing with and whether it is even possible to open or view the file format.

Answer: Files which are given the .4DV extension are known as 4D View Ultrasound files, however other file types may also use this extension. If you are aware of any additional file formats that use the 4DV extension, please let us know.

How to open a 4DV file:

The best way to open an 4DV data file is to simply double-click it and let the default assoisated application open the file. If you are unable to open the file this way, it may be because you do not have the correct application associated with the extension to view or edit the 4DV file.

This data file format was added to our database by a visitor to this site, but no additional information was provided. We have yet to investigate this file type further, or there was not enough information available at the time to report accurately on the format.

Please check back soon for more information as we are constantly updating our file descriptions based on search frequency.

Tip: Try to open the 4DV file using a text-editor such as Notepad, as many file types contain simply contain unformatted plain-text and can viewed correctly using this method.

Seems *.4dv are files from a GE Ultrasound machine. Which totally makes sense because that's what they used to see my cute little baby squirming around inside me. Alas, they put the files on the DVR that I supplied them without letting me know there was no way I would ever be able to see them again.

Is there any way I can view the *.4dv file on my computer?

There is a way to see these files. GE has a 60 days trial version which you can download.

oh wow.... a .4dv is a 3d ultrasound file and can not be opened properly with notepad or anything like that, you will need a 3d program or convert the file extension to the file type you are able to open such as .obj.
