We are engaged in studying the process of human birth by developing a computer-based dynamic model that can be adapted to specific birth scenarios. The individual characteristics of a given pregnant woman and fetus, embedded in their clinical measurements and CT and MRI images, are captured in the model. One can thereby predict adverse events that might happen during labor and delivery. Based on our findings from a preliminary design and execution of this model, we believe it holds great promise as an accurate, cost-effective diagnostic and teaching tool that will help predict conditions during individual labor scenarios that might cause traumatic birth injuries, and thereby enable us to make the most informed clinical decisions possible.
