Medical models and surgical guides can be customized using 3D printed medical models
To create a medical model, you can perform three-dimensional modelling based on CT or MRI images of the patient before the operation. You then print out the model using a 3-D printer. The 3D printed model allows the doctor to visualize the three dimensional structure of surgical site in advance of the operation. It helps plan the surgery. This is especially useful for complex surgeries as it reduces the risks and increases the success rates.
Applications of 3D Printing in Dentistry
Dental clinics, laboratories and dentists need to take into consideration the cost of dental treatment. To improve efficiency and lower costs, many forward-thinking dental clinics have adopted digital dental technology. Recently, software-based dental restorations have gained popularity. Digital dental technology coupled with 3D printing offers high precision and efficiency at a low cost.
Applications of 3D Printing in Medical Device Manufacturing
The manufacturing of medical devices is similar to other products. For the verification of design, prototypes must be produced during the product development stage. Metal 3D-printing technology has surpassed prototypes in medical device manufacturing. In order to repair an anterior cruciate knee ligament injury, a doctor first has to remove any remaining anterior ligament and then precisely replace the graft. In order to achieve accuracy and minimize invasiveness, doctors must use a sophisticated and specialized surgical tool. The nickel-chromium alloy that is used to make this surgical tool is a hard-to-process metal. Traditional machining is required to make the tool, and is time-consuming and expensive. In this situation, metal 3D-printing technology is a better option for manufacturing.
Use of 3D printing for manufacturing medicines
Three-dimensional printing has an impact on pharmaceuticals in four ways: first, it allows for personalized customization of active ingredients; second, it allows patients to have personalized treatment plans. This layer-bylayer printing technique allows different coatings be tightly combined together so that maximum doses of a substance can be packed into a pill so the patient can take fewer or smaller tablets. 3D-printing technology can be used to print various shapes that are appealing to children who do not like taking medicine.
