Medical 3D printing | Advantages of 3D printing in the medical field

As the latest technology in the world, 3D printing has been applied more and more in the medical field. Because of inadequate organs donations and serious rejection after surgery, traditional medical methods have not been able to meet the requirements of patients who need organ transplants, for example, heart transplants and different fractures. And 3D printing can copy the structure of the human body perfectly and in accordance with ergonomics. The 3D printing application in this field is very large. Before using 3D printing, the surgeon only relies on computer experiences and images to understand the operating process.

1. Increase the accuracy of the operation
3D printing solutions can help optimize pre-operative preparation and increase the accuracy and efficiency of operation. The model based on the patient's pathological structure is used to improve clinical yields.

2. Shorten the time of operation
With the help of scanning equipment and printing models, the treatment plan can be increased before the operation. Which means that some organs and structures of the human body can be printed by 3D printers for observation. The physical model that actually has many advantages, such as solids, space, touch, and so on. This can help optimize pre-operative preparation, simulate a large number of live networks, increase doctor's confidence, and shorten operating time.

3. Customization of surgical instruments
The print model can simulate soft tissue, muscles, cartilage, bones, and so on. Transparent material can also be used to provide a display of hidden network panoramas and blood vessels. So doctors can adjust surgical instruments according to the patient's pathological structure.

There are many 3D printing cases that are successful in medical fields abroad. In the future, skin printed, bone, internal organs, and other organs will be widely used in clinical practice, benefiting more patients, especially those who need organ transplants, and will benefit from 3D printing technology. (For the medical field, the suggested printer is LD-002R and CR-10 Pro.)
