Unborn Babies on Your Ipod
Expectant mothers can now download video pictures of their unborn baby onto an iPod.
Launched today by the Portland Hospital, the new high-tech scanning service could signal the end of grainy black-and-white prints. The 4D realtime ultrasounds provide a new level of detail for in-the-womb images - and are better for detecting problems.
Women can visit the clinic in their lunch hour, have a 40-minute scan and then download the high-definition images to their MP3 player or mobile phone via a secure internet site.
The 4D scans can be carried out at 12 weeks for download onto a CD or DVD. However, recognisable baby images only first become clear at 18 to 20 weeks.
