"BUMPCAM! You're IT!"
"In The Womb" to air on National Geographic Channel
"On Sunday, March 6, 2005, at 8 p.m. ET/ 9 p.m. PT, the National Geographic Channel (NGC) presents 'In the Womb,' a two-hour special that uses the latest advances in technology to take viewers on the incredible adventure of a developing new life. Revolutionary 3-D and 4-D ultrasound imagery sheds light on the delicate, dark world of a fetus. Viewers will also have the chance to witness a rare fetoscope operation performed in the hope of correcting life- threatening complications before birth.The show also depicts a fetus with a congenital diaphragmatic hernia, which usually causes death within two days of birth: "If left untreated, the growing abdominal organs will push up through the hole into the chest cavity and limit the development of the lungs." They show a surgeon repairing this in utero.
"Viewers can also experience the world outside the fetus from a belly-eye view when the mother is fitted with a BUMPCAM. Watch from this vantage point to learn how the fetus responds to music playing or to nursery rhymes read aloud by its mother or father."
Sure wish I had cable!
