UK Laboratory Develops Amazing Fetal Ultrasound Image Technology
LONDON, December 5, 2012 /PRNewswire/ –
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.
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
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
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
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 mums-to-be.
