I Love Science! MRI Scan Shows Childbirth in Action
How cool is this? Berlin’s CharitÃ© Hospital has developed an open MRI scan that let them take pictures of childbirth. It’s the first time that anyone has been able to see what’s happening on the inside during labor and delivery as it happens.
What’s it good for? According to the German news report:
Childbirth, whether vaginal or by Cesarean, can have quite an impact on sexual and reproductive health and function, not to mention sexual pleasure. As we learn more about this, maybe we’ll develop better ways to address the issues that can arise.
Also, it’s just cool. 🙂
