Patient-specific 3D printed anatomical models are becoming increasingly useful tools in today’s practice of precision medicine. As medical CAD/CAM software and 3D printers become more accessible, healthcare providers across the globe are using high-accuracy 3D printed models for preoperative planning, enhanced patient consent, intraoperative visualization, and sizing or pre-fitting medical equipment for both routine and highly complex procedures.
This white paper offers a practical walkthrough for physicians and technologists to get started creating 3D printed anatomicals models from patient scans, reviewing best practices for setting up a CT/MRI scan, segmenting datasets, and converting files to a 3D-printable format.
