Use of 3D printing In Medical applications


Take for example, a dog that has a bone chip in the elbow joint

“The initial CT scan or X-ray will likely show the

problem, but it is difficult to explain to the family how it has occurred

and what treatment is required. With a model of the joint showing

where the damage has occurred, not only can the referring vet make

a better judgment on whether specialist surgery is required, but can

also show the pet owner how it will be done.


It’s difficult to fully understand the malformation until you have it in your hands, that usually doesn’t happen until you are in surgery !!
