3D Printing & Surgical Models

Video: A collaboration between Nottingham and Loughborough brings a major breakthrough in surgical training, via the production of models that replicate complex bodily structures with high precision.

Using data from CT or MRI scans, they employ an additive manufacturing (3-D printing) technique to create accurate ceramic models of the sinus. The models, which are relatively cheap, are so lifelike that training is hugely enhanced. Even rare disorders can be replicated.
