Researchers from the US and Canada have released a supplement to their Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) 2018 hands-on 3D printing course, reviewing techniques for creating 3D printed cranio-maxillofacial (CMF), orthopedic, and renal cancer models.
These models can also be viewed in both virtual and augmented realities, as outlined in their recently published ‘ Creating patient-specific anatomical models for 3D printing and AR/VR: a supplement for the 2018 Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) hands-on course .’
As 3D printing becomes more accessible, affordable, and less intimidating to users in the mainstream, hospitals and doctor’s offices are beginning to use this technology on-site and on-demand in offering more patient-specific care—whether in the creation of models or medical devices. Both augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) tend to accompany 3D design and printing also, especially in the medical field where visualization is key in making diagnoses, planning treatment, […]
