Not yet: Great question, but no, not yet. We are working on 3d matrices for ribs (and other bones), but no regeneration is possible....Yet.

A 38-year-old member asked:

What are 3d and 4d ultrasounds?

Fun pictures: 3d and 4d ultrasounds are images obtained with special probes and machines that can give pictures of the fetus in three dimension. This can give beautiful pictures of the facial features, the limbs, body etc. A still picture is 3d and watching the screen and the baby moving is the 3d image. Enjoy the experience, fun to see baby move.

No real difference: A regular 2d ultrasound can detect many problems. I do not believe that 3d ultrasounds offer that much more. Possibly a 3d ultrasound may be better at evaluating cleft lips and facial abnormalities.

Do 3d televisions/movies have any adverse health effects?

None: The fact that a movie is in 3-d can enhance the viewing experience but will have no impact on health. You can only perceive 3-d if you have good vision from both eyes so if you cannot see the depth, then check with your ophthalmologist to see if your vision is ok.

No. : No. You get all the needed wires with one scan. However, if after your last wire of the series you need additional ones to tweak a few positions to an ideal final result, a scan may or may not be necessary depending on the amount of movement needed.
