3D-Printed Medical Organs Models


The process of 3D-printed medical organs models typically includes following steps:

  1. data collection; 2.Data processing; 3.3D printing;




Data Collection


3D digital images are the source of information for 3D printing. CT and MRI technologies are mainly used for data acquisition to obtain images of the required parts. Other technologies such as CTA, 3D echocardiography, and 3D laser scanning are also used for image acquisition.



Data Processing


The collected images require specialized processing. The complexity of image processing is determined by the specific application requirements of the final model. Generally, specialized software is needed to segment, combine, and process the original image. Unnecessary structures can also be removed, surfaces can be optimized, or corresponding molds can be designed to create the final CAD model.



3D Printing


Finally, 3D printing directly prints out the final organ model or creates various molds through 3D printing, and then uses materials such as silicone, polyurethane, etc. to cast in the mold to obtain the final organ model. The selection of materials for manufacturing molds is very diverse, including plastic, resin, paraffin, gypsum, etc.
