New Image Technology available first at the Portland!
The Portland is the first hospital in the world to offer this revolutionary ‘Sense My Baby’ technology exclusively to anyone who has had an ultrasound scan at the Portland. Parents-to-be can see their existing ultrasound image enhanced with breathtaking clarity to that of an actual photograph, giving them a ‘real’ feel of what their baby will actually look like*.
Over sixty hours of analysis and re-engineering is required to produce one ‘Life Changing’ image. Sense My Baby provides an amazing window to your unborn baby's world and the closest thing to seeing your baby before birth.
How Sense My Baby works
Sense My Baby uses ‘structural’ information from the original image, analysing data characteristics that enable the system to differentiate between the degraded image and that of a higher resolution - the latter being the area that is isolated and then captured. These images are then individually enhanced using CEIP technology (Corrective Enhancement Imagery Programme).
How to book Sense my Baby?
The following is a step-by-step guide to purchasing Sense My Baby’s Life Changing Images:
1. You will first need to book your 3/4D ultrasound baby scan with The Portland Hospital. No additional scans are required, as Sense My Baby conduct their procedure on the video information contained within the scan recording (DVD).
2. The Portland will then send the scanned information to Sense My Baby electronically via a dedicated secure encrypted channel. This goes direct to the Sense My Baby Laboratory, where the image analysis will take place.
3. Sense My Baby will contact you directly to discuss the scan, once we have received and reviewed the imagery. Payment is only taken by Sense by Baby, once confirmation is given that you are happy to proceed.
4. Once finalisation of the image has taken place, it will be returned electronically to The Portland Hospital via the same dedicated secure channel and Sense My Baby will inform you upon the dispatch of your image. Expected delivery time is between 5-7 days.
