False-colour X-ray of a human foetus in the womb. The foetus is coloured red with parts of its skeleton coloured yellow, particularly the limbs. Its skull is at lower left. The vertebral column (spine) of the mother can be seen at far left of centre; her pelvic bone is the grey region super- imposed over the foetal head. The foetus thus is facing downwards toward the birth canal.
