Before the advancement of computer generated imaging, three dimensional ultrasound technology and the ability to use those enhancements in the medical field, seeing images of animals in the womb seemed impossible without the use of invasive cameras and surgery.
While we still aren't able to capture images quite as colorful and detailed as these computer generated images created by Peter Chinn, who used "a combination of dimensional ultrasound scans, tiny cameras and computer graphics to create these truly astonishing embryonic images", the images featured in a National Geographic Channel special we covered nearly six years ago here on Neatorama give us a good idea of what future 3D ultrasound images might look like. And for the first time you can see all twelve embryonic animal snapsots, from the adorable elephant to the long-necked horse.
