UK Laboratory Develops Amazing Fetal Ultrasound Image Technology.
Ground-breaking research over the past two years have delivered UK laboratory
'Sense My Baby' with what some experts are calling 'the most advanced'
ultrasound images ever seen.
For Immediate Release
United Kingdom-Seeing the first ultrasound image of your baby is a life-changing
moment for any parents. However, the resulting imagery 'although having come
along way since 2D' has still yet to produce the type of definition found in an
actual photograph, that was up until now. Following two years of confidential
development, one UK company is about to launch
ground-breaking technology that
can display any existing ultrasound image with breathtaking clarity.
The company's founder, Dr. Lissette Torres-Cabrera, pioneered the technology
after having experienced complications during the pregnancy of her first child
three years ago. She recalls, "Being the mother in such circumstances is very
different to that of being the doctor, you worry just as much as any other
mother, so being able to retain a strong bond with your child in a situation
like that is so important for you both. I found myself focusing on my ultrasound
image, which helped me to remain calm and connected - 'sight' being one of our
strongest senses. This became the catalyst for the development, with the
intention to provide families with a lasting connection," says Torres Cabrera.
She continues, "The most amazing aspect of our CEIP (Corrective Enhancement
Imagery Program) is that the mother doesn't require a special scan, any regular
3/4D scan is all that's needed. The system is able to re-engineer existing
imagery to create an ultra-clear image, allowing you 'for the first time' to see
your unborn baby from within the womb with remarkable detail. It's the closest
thing to seeing your baby before birth."
Using 'structural' information from the original image, data characteristics are
analysed and the system is able to differentiate between the degraded image area
and that of a higher resolution - the latter being the area that is isolated and
then captured. These images are then individually enhanced using CEIP, before
being re-engineered to create a layering effect - where required the orientation
of the image is changed to facilitate the reconstruction.
Leading industry experts are already showing an interest in the technology.
Professor Kypros Nicolaides, the world's leading authority on Obstetrics and
director of the Harris Birthright Research Centre for Fetal Medicine at King's
College Hospital, was the first to privately review the pioneering work and
confirm that the imagery was the most advanced he has ever seen stating, "The
images are absolutely stunning and the detail is truly amazing..."
The new technology provides a game-changing advancement in ultrasound image
recognition and is poised to provide parents with a unique opportunity to see
their baby's face like never before.
"We are rapidly changing the way that expectant parents see their children for
the first time. This is a pivotal moment in the life of any parent and we're
delighted to be leading the industry in making it as memorable a moment as
possible," Torres-Cabrera concludes.
Those wanting to experience what 'Sense My Baby' has to offer, won't have to
wait long; the technology is due to become commercially available within weeks.
Although it comes at a price, it is sure to be the 'must have' accessory for all
