3D Printing in Medicine

Using 3D printing, physicians can use a custom model to describe their patient’s condition in more detail or better illustrate an upcoming procedure.

In addition, 3D-printed organ models can be used to test and practice operations before they are actually performed. Another area of application for 3D printing in medicine is personalized implants, which have made life easier for many patients, including animal patients.

In the medical field, there is also so-called bioprinting – a sector dedicated to 3D printing with human cells. There are special bioprinters on the market for this purpose and the first viable tissue has already been printed in the laboratory.
