- 3D Printing has been used in medical modeling for years.
- 3D Printing is used to educate doctors and medical staff.
- It can also be used in complex medical procedures for surgical planning.
- Or to explain surgeries and other procedures to patients.
3D Printing’s ability to make a physical object out of a file or idea has lead to many applications. In medicine 3D Printing is used for orthopedics, surgical guides, dental protheses and is an there is an emerging technology area in bioprinting. One thing that has been happening with 3D Printing for many years now is the use of 3D Prints as medical models. Hand made medical model or those based on human skeletons and tissue were expensive and rare. To make medical models more widely available doctors and medical educators worldwide have turned to 3D Printing to make less expensive more widely available 3D Prints. 3D Printed Medical models are used to educate future doctors and medical staff, they can also be used in complex surgeries for surgical planning and they can be used to explain procedures to patients.
