3D printed models help doctors communicate with patients or their family members so they can better understand what is about to happen to them, thereby assisting in the surgical consent process and providing a sense of understanding and calm ahead of the procedure.
PRE-SURGICAL ASSESSMENT & PLANNING
These patient specific 3D printed anatomical models are used by surgeons in preparation for surgery. Being able to visualise the structures in a 3D and physical manner can decrease the amount of planning done in theatre and therefore reduce the time patients are under anesthetic.
INTRA OPERATIVE REFERENCE
3D models produced in specific materials may be medically sterilised and brought into the operating theatre to be used for guidance. The added benefits include having an unparalleled reference tool which can lead to reduced theatre time and operational cost savings.
