Combatting Vascular Diseases with 3D Printed Anatomical ModelsBy Robolab Technologies In 3D printers
The Jacobs Institute is renowned for pushing the boundaries of innovation to combat vascular diseases. And Stratasys 3D printing is proving to be one of their most effective technologies.
Patient CT and MRI scans are transformed in just a few hours into accurate, life-like 3D printed anatomical models. These patient-specific models can be used to test complicated procedures before surgery – impossible to do any other way – as was the case of patient who required a complex brain aneurysm procedure.
The 3D printed models are also unparalleled clinical education aids and allow students to prepare for a multitude of possibilities and complications including complex tortuosity.
Watch this fascinating video to see how 3D printing can improve patient outcomes.
