3D Printing to Understand and Heal Hearts at Henry Ford Health System

To heal the heart, we have to use our brains — and the human brain understands three dimensions. The difference between a 2D CT scan and a 3D printed model made after manipulating CAD files can be, quite literally, the difference between life and death. In less dire terms, a physical model made on a […]
