Virtual reality provides vivid look at a fetus inside the womb

Brazilian researchers have devised a way to immerse parents in virtual reality visualizations of their unborn babies, though the most vivid visuals will likely be reserved for a tiny fraction of pregnancies in which doctors suspect health problems. The technology has been tested in about 30 pregnancies at a Rio de Janeiro clinic but has not yet been peer-reviewed; it will be presented next week at the annual meeting of the Radiological Society of North America.
