By the time Bear was born, you didn't have to leave the exam room to get an ultrasound, which was standard part of the pre-term experience. Not only did you get a printout, but it was labeled, including specific body parts, my name and the date the ultrasound was performed.
Now we have 3D ultrasounds that give a detailed look at the baby. And the next newest thing... 3-D printers that allow blind parents to touch and feel what their baby "looks" like before it's born. I'm sure it has - or will have - some medical applications as well.
