Endoprosthesis Modelling with 3D Printing Technology

Supported by sophisticated CAD/CAM software modern manufacturing technologies create new possibilities of modelling even most complicated shapes with high precision. Medical application for 3D Printing is particularly interesting. Additive manufacturing technology can be used to print, at low cost, faithful models of human organs serving as teaching aids for future doctors. Three-dimensional models featuring high precision, acquired based on medical imaging (e.g. CT) of a specific patient, can be helpful when preparing for an operation. Endoprosthesis printed for an individual [...]

3D Printing in Facial Reconstruction

The orbit is the cavity or socket of the skull in which the eye and its appendages are situated. It serves as a skeleton for the protective apparatus of the eyeball. Among most common reasons for its injuries are traffic accidents, assault and battery, sports and fall injuries. Out of four walls constituting the eye socket the bottom one gets most commonly damaged. Any injuries of the eye socket can lead to permanent facial deformation and visual impairment, therefore, [...]
