Twins Fighting In Womb: New MRI Shows Identical Twins Fighting Inside Womb (Video)By Marhgil Macuha on Dec 3, 2012 in Europe, Health, Science, World •
A video of twins, seemingly fighting inside their mother’s womb is made available online, international news sites reported on Friday, November 30, 2012.
The video, as shown below, shows identical twins kicking each other fighting for more leg room inside the womb. According to reports, the video was taken by a new high-clarity MRI, also called “cinematic MRI,” from London‘s Center for Fetal Care.
“What this lets us do is see their positions in relation to each other and how much space they occupy, and how they might move around and push each other out of the way,” Dr. Marisa Taylor-Clarke reportedly said.
Reports said that the new technology is being used by doctors in London to learn more about twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS), in which one twin takes blood from the other.
“One of the problems with the imbalances of blood flow is that if you get a sudden shift of blood from one twin to the other, that can cause brain injury. So it can cause stroke or hemorrhage in one or both of the twins’ brains.” Dr. Taylor-Clarke was quoted as saying.
“MRI can pick up signs of brain injury much earlier and in much greater detail than ultrasound can at the moment.”
The new MRI scan is being developed continuously for better utilization of studying TTTS, reports said.
