Reproduce highly accurate body parts
Improve the quality of surgical planning with a highly accurate tangible representation of the body part requiring the operation. CT and MRI data can be easily converted into printable files and easily separate so you can take a good look at the problem in isolation whether its bone, soft tissue or brain. Seeing the problem physically adds many new perspectives that an image on a screen could never convey. Printing is easy, requiring little attention and the cost of production is unbelievably low.
Understanding relieves stress
Having an exact copy of the problem is not just beneficial to the surgeon but the patient can also be relieved of stress simply by understanding the problem. 3D printing the tumour and surrounding area can help the patient gain a clear understanding of the problem and the procedure so that a lack of understanding is never causing additional stress.
Generalised resources are in the past
Training resources can be very generalised and cannot give a true representation of real world situation. 3D printing gives the possibility of using real life CT or MRI data to produce a variety of realistic body parts so that extreme cases can be shown clearly at the training stage and trainee doctors have confidence at an early stage in their development.
Improve medical devices and patient specific models
Additive manufacturing has brought many advancements to product design and production. The freedom to personalise is bringing many previously impossible products to market. 3D printing can also reduce your time to market and save you development costs. Tooling requirements are often eradicated and the printing process can take hours rather than weeks using traditional methods.
Why choose 3D Printing in Medicine?
