Animals Pictured in the Womb
Posted on Nov 22, 2006
Using a cutting-edge array of 3-D ultrasound scans and tiny cameras, a British production team has produced images of the entire gestation process of many different animals, like this developing elephant (right). The images are to air on National Geographic next month.
Using an array of technology, the images reveal what until now has been a secret—exactly how animals develop in the womb. They were created by the same team who in 2004 showed how human embryos “walk in the womb.”
Using a combination of three-dimensional ultrasound scans, computer graphics and tiny cameras, the team were able to show the entire process from conception to birth.
... The images were created for the programme “Animals in the Womb,” a two-hour show to be broadcast on the National Geographic Channel in America next month and on Channel 4 and the National Geographic Channel in the UK next year.
