1. The most astonishing birth video ever… captured by MRI: Well, “this is not your average birth video,” says Katie Moisse at ABC News. Using a technique called cinematic MRI — stringing together still images from a magnetic resonance imaging scanner to form a video — German researchers have created the first-ever film of a live birth from the inside. 

    The team at Berlin’s Charité University Hospital had a 24-year-old mother complete her labor in a specially designed open MRI machine, capturing a side view of the baby emerging from the birth canal as the mother has her final contractions. They stopped the loud MRI machine as the baby’s head emerged, so as not to harm the newborn’s ears. The labor was recorded in 2010, but the video was just released in tandem with the publication of their study in the June issue of the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology.

    This is mind blowing. I don’t even want to think about the radiation the MRI gave to this child though.
