3D has been the talk of the town when it comes to technology. Whether it’s 3D TV, 3D printing, or 3D video games, the two-dimensional world we once knew may be in serious jeopardy. The lastest three-dimensional fad has hit the ultrasound world. New state-of-the-art 3D ultrasound imaging software by Dr. Bernard Benoit is capable of mapping a fetus in incredible detail. This type of technology can also come in handy with patients who need extensive surgery, as this new procedure could virtually eliminate the MRI by providing much more detail.
Besides an extensive help in the medical world, how cool is that we can now accurately see how babies look like before they’re born. I can already see it now, beauty pageants for babies still in the womb. Hey, if shows like Honey Boo-Boo are possible then anything is right? Overall, this technology can be crucial to helping birth a healthy baby, but sometimes the small things like seeing your unborn child with a huge emoticon-like smile on his face is what truly makes this technology special.
