“World’s First Baby” Get Birth In MRI Machine !
By hard work of 2 years a team of obstetricians, radiologists and engineers at Charity Hospital have created an “open” MRI scanner that allows a pregnant woman to fit fully into the machine to give birth.
It is hoped that new machine will help researchers to study in “greater detail” about how the baby moves through the birth canal & understanding why a growing number of women end up needing a caesarean section.
Dr. Manny Alvarez, Chairman of the Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology and Reproductive Science at Hackensack University Medical Center in New Jersey, said this new technology is fascinating. He added that now we can explain fully why some women can deliver 10-pound babies while others need a C-section for an 8-pounder.
A hospital spokesman said the birth that took place in the new scanner went smoothly, and both the mother and baby are in good health.
