Neurosurgical 3D Printing Applications

The Neurosurgery field is utilizing 3D printing in a way that brings significant advancements in patient care and overall accuracy. The intricate and complex nature of surgical procedures are even more difficult to navigate with traditional 2D imaging. These images have evolved overtime, yet are still viewed on a 2D screen. Thus, leaving the interpretation up to the surgeon before the procedure. 

The utilization of 3D printing has allowed the medical professionals to view accurate models of each individual patient without leaving anything up to interpretation. This visualization of anatomical structures with various angles gives them the ability to fully discover any nuances before surgery that helps to avoid costly mistakes.

In this white paper, we will uncover how these patient-specific 3D models can be used for pre-surgical planning.

Topic Overview

How 3D printing can aide in:

  • The creation of patient-specific anatomical models
    for surgical planning, training and education
  • The design of neurosurgical devices for assessment
    and treatment of neurosurgical diseases
  • The development of biological tissue-engineered
    implants
