First motion MRI of unborn twins

If you want to get a sense of what it might be like to share a womb with a sibling, this video may give you a glimpse. For the first time, unborn twins have been captured using cinematic MRI, a technique that images slices of the body several times to create a video with astonishing detail.

According to Marisa Taylor-Clarke of Imperial College London, who recorded the images, this is “raw” footage, unlike typical videos of the womb, which require computer processing afterwards. She uses the technique to study twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome, a potentially fatal condition where one twin’s growth is stunted when its sibling receives more of the blood supply.
