The new technology combines magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) -- which provides high-resolution foetal and placental imaging with excellent contrast.
In a new breakthrough research, Brazilian scientists have developed a new technology that will enable parents to watch their unborn babies grow in realistic three-dimensional immersive visualisation.
The new technology combines magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) -- which provides high-resolution foetal and placental imaging with excellent contrast -- and ultrasound data to scan segments of the mother's womb and foetus to build a 3-D model which can be brought to life by using a virtual reality (VR) headset.
"The 3-D foetal models combined with virtual reality immersive technologies may improve our understanding of foetal anatomical characteristics and can be used for educational purposes and as a method for parents to visualise their unborn baby," said Heron Werner Jr. from the Clinica de Diagnostico por Imagem, in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
Sequentially-mounted MRI slices are used to begin construction of the model. A segmentation process follows in which the physician selects the body parts to be reconstructed in 3-D.
Once an accurate 3-D model is created -- including the womb, umbilical cord, placenta and foetus -- the virtual reality device can be programmed to incorporate the model, the study said.
The virtual reality foetal 3-D models are remarkably similar to the post-natal appearance of the newborn baby.
They recreate the entire internal structure of the foetus, including a detailed view of the respiratory tract, which can aid doctors in assessing abnormalities, Werner added.
The technology also can help coordinate care with multidisciplinary teams and provide better visual information to parents to help them understand malformations and treatment decisions.
"We believe that these images will help facilitate a multidisciplinary discussion about some pathologies in addition to bringing a new experience for parents when following the development of their unborn child," Werner said.
The study will be presented at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America in Chicago, US.
The new update will significantly improve the data speed, call quality and more on Airtel networks.
The chipset combines a 2.3 GHz quad-core and 1.6 GHz quad-core which is coupled with Mali-T880 graphics.
The smartphone is listed with full specifications, alongside product images.
It seems that LG has already learned from Samsung's mistake and is all set to make its next flagship device a lot safer
Vdeo 3 comes bundled with Jio sim which will enable users to avail free data and voice calling till 31st March.
The video doesn't reveal the back or sides of the device so we are not sure about the camera setup the device will be boasting at the back.
The listing reveals that the smartphone features a 5.5-inch Full HD display.
It is rumoured to be backed up by a 3,000mAh battery with Qualcomm Quick Charge fast charging support.
Before this, Google Pixel devices were only available via Flipkart and some select offline stores.
After issues related to LTE connectivity and the camera, a lot of users were recently experiencing some weird distortion in the audio output.
