Submission + - Live Human Birth Captured by MRI ( 2

DIplomatic writes: Doctors at a Berlin hospital have made a medical breakthrough after capturing live MRI images of the miracle of birth.
The pictures, taken after a German mother agreed to give birth inside a magnetic-resonance imaging machine, could provide valuable new insights into the birthing process and allow future lives to be saved.
The creation of the live MRI images of a birth could prove vital in understanding complications during the birthing process and the need for around 15 per cent of women to have a Caesarian section due to the baby not moving sufficiently into the birth canal.
