3D Printed MRI-Compatible Biopsy Robot Works to Diagnose Breast Cancer

3D Printed MRI-Compatible Biopsy Robot Works to Diagnose Breast Cancer

I first truly became aware of 3D technology sometime in 2010 or 2011, when I went to the mall with my co-worker during our lunch break to grab a chili dog and check out a large surgical robot that was being demonstrated in the center of the mall, where Santa and the Easter Bunny typically […]

Microfabrica and US Endoscopy Partner to Create a Tiny 3D Printed Weapon in the Huge Battle Against Pancreatic Cancer

Microfabrica and US Endoscopy Partner to Create a Tiny 3D Printed Weapon in the Huge Battle Against Pancreatic Cancer

Any cancer diagnosis is frightening, but pancreatic cancer is especially so. It’s more difficult to treat than other types of cancers, as it spreads rapidly and is rarely detected until it’s in an advanced stage. According to the American Cancer Society, the one-year relative survival rate for pancreatic cancer is 20%, while the five-year rate […]
