New 3D Printed Organ Models Don't Just Look Like Real Organs, They Feel and React Like Them Too

New 3D Printed Organ Models Don't Just Look Like Real Organs, They Feel and React Like Them Too

There is plenty of evidence to show that 3D printed anatomical models greatly improve the outcomes of medical procedures. When surgeons can plan and practice an operation on a perfect 3D printed replica of a patient’s organ, surgeries tend to take less time, as does recovery. But there are still limitations to the 3D printed […]

The R&D Tax Aspects of 3D Printing Anatomical Models

Hospitals are beginning to integrate 3D printing technologies into their operations to better prepare surgeons for high-risk procedures. Practice makes perfect, but when it comes to healthcare, no two surgeries are exactly alike. Advanced software, medical imaging, and 3D printing technologies can now be used in conjunction to produce an anatomically correct model of a […]

3D Printed Microfluidic Devices Could Increase the Number of Viable Organs for Transplant

3D Printed Microfluidic Devices Could Increase the Number of Viable Organs for Transplant

While great strides have been made in 3D bioprinting, including the production of living tissue for drug testing and disease research, the ultimate goal is still elusive: to 3D print entire, working organs for transplant into humans in need. There’s a global shortage of organs for transplant; demand highly exceeds supply. Currently, only about one […]

Materialise's 3D Printing and Imaging Technology Helps Medical Professionals in Clinical Trials

When it comes to medical products, whether it’s a drug or a device, almost nothing gets to market without being tested extensively in clinical trials first. It’s a long, often expensive process to bring a new medical product to the public, but several medical professionals in the United States have found that process to be […]

GE Healthcare Researching Ways to 3D Print Medical Models With the Touch of a Button

GE Healthcare Researching Ways to 3D Print Medical Models With the Touch of a Button

About two years ago, GE Healthcare teamed up with Arterys to develop an MRI scanning technology that displays images of a patient’s heart in seven dimensions. While that is an impressive task indeed, we know that 3D printed medical models offer patients and doctors a little something extra: the sense of touch. For example, cardiologists […]

3D Printed Robot Provides Lifelike Simulation for Japanese Medical Students

3D Printed Robot Provides Lifelike Simulation for Japanese Medical Students

It’s really incredible how lifelike medical training models are getting. Advanced technology like 3D printing and robotics are allowing for the creation of models that look, feel and even respond like actual human beings. Rather than having to pretend that stiff plastic is human skin, or that a cadaver is a living person, medical students […]

Cardiac Experts Make Case for Increased Use of 3D Printed Heart Models

Cardiac Experts Make Case for Increased Use of 3D Printed Heart Models

Dr. Matthew Bramlet discovered 3D printing back in 2009, and not long after that the pediatric cardiologist was 3D printing his first heart model. Amazed at the way the patient-specific model changed the course of the surgery, Dr. Bramlet was sold on the technology for good. He decided to begin building a digital library of […]

PhD Candidate Turns to 3D Hubs to Create Realistic, Functioning 3D Printed Neonatal Models for Medical Training

PhD Candidate Turns to 3D Hubs to Create Realistic, Functioning 3D Printed Neonatal Models for Medical Training

It’s hard when a loved one has to undergo surgery. Obviously, it’s difficult for the patient, but it’s also hard to sit in the waiting room, powerless, hoping the doctor comes in soon, but not too soon, and gives you good news. I don’t have personal experience with this, but I imagine it’s probably even […]

Researchers 3D Print Kidney Phantoms to Determine Optimal Radiation Dosage for Patients

Researchers 3D Print Kidney Phantoms to Determine Optimal Radiation Dosage for Patients

With certain diseases, you often hear people say that the treatment is worse than the disease itself, in terms of discomfort and pain. That’s particularly the case with cancer and the nausea caused by chemotherapy, and the side effects caused by radiation, especially in larger doses. Radiation carries its own risks, too, though in many […]
