Just when we thought we’d hit the jackpot with 3D scans… we can now 3D PRINT perfect replicas of our baby whilst in utero!
In 2016, a team of brilliant Brazilian scientists developed 3D imaging technology developed by Ivan Gridin, Founder of Russian firm Embryo 3D, to allow parents to see realistic images of their unborn babies. To do this, they used the ‘Oculus Rift virtual reality headset’ (gamers and South Park fans will know what this is…) to bring MRI and ultrasound scans to life, with a much sharper and clear view rather than an often blurry and indistinct ultrasound.
This technology could aid doctors in finding abnormalities far earlier and more effectively!
Whilst this isn’t cheap or mainstream yet, this is a potentially a glimpse into the future… imagine this being the norm one day!
