Siemens demonstrated Sie-Reality at this year’s RSNA conference. The new ultrasound technology displays fetal images that take on a third dimension when viewed through 3D glasses. Still a work-in-progress, Sie-Reality is designed more for patients than physicians. Ultrasound operators would look at the console, according to Barbara Del Prince, ob/gyn segment marketing manager at Siemens, while patients view a special 3D screen through special glasses. Through this, expectant parents might bond with their unborn child or better understand any fetal abnormalities.
