Dr. Marisa Taylor-Clarke was using a new technology called cine-MRI scan, as part of a London medical study when she caught these twin babies fighting for space in the womb. The twins seem to be trying to get more comfortable and as a result they seem to be hitting each other.
This new technology is being used to study twin-to-twin transfusion syndrome. TTTS is when twins share a placenta that contains abnormal blood vessels which can cause one twin to get less nutrients than the other. Getting less nutrients can thus result in one twin not growing normally or it can even result as the death of the malnourished twin.
The possible results of this syndrome are quite unfortunate, but doctors like Dr. Taylor-Clarke are trying their best to come up with a rescue treatment. Hopefully they will be able to come up with the ways of prevention and treatment very soon.
