    Need of advancements for 3D printing from MRI data

    By DevarshVyas

    Hello the Biomedical 3D Printing community, it's Devarsh Vyas here writing after a really long time!    This time i'd like to share my personal experience and challenges faced with respect to medical 3D Printing from the MRI data. This can be a knowledge sharing and a debatable topic and I am looking forward to hear and know what other experts here think of this as well with utmost respect.    In the Just recently concluded RSNA conference at Chicago had a wave of technology

    Medical 3D printing 101

    By valchanov

    Bones   The main advantage of the orthopedical presurgical 3d printed models is the possibility to create an accurate model, which can be used for metal osteosynthesis premodelling - the surgeons can prepare (bend, twist, accommodate) the implants prior the operation. After a sterilisation (autoclaving, UV-light, gamma-ray etc etc), those implants can be used in the planned surgery, which will decrease the overall surgery time (in some cases with more than an hour) with all it's advant

    In the last few decades, the 4th industrial revolution began - a significant advance in the 3D technology and an emerging of a brand new production method - the computer-controlled additive/subtractive manufacturing. It is considered "the new wheel" and it gives the ability to generate a detailed three dimensional object with complicated geometry from various materials (metals, polymers, clay, biological macro molecules) with a robot, controlled by a computer.

3d printing and COVID-19 UPDATE!

In recent weeks we have seen that the spread of the Coronavirus has increased. However, on the good note, we have also seen an increasing number of people willing to help. Thousands of people from around the world who have 3d printers have share their contact information, creating a large database, offering their knowledge in 3d technology (mostly non-profit) to help in this fight against coronavirus.   In Spain, for example, thanks to the biomedical3d company, some hospitals such as t

LIVERPOOL, N.Y. - A couple of entrepreneurs Isaac Budmen and Stephanie Keefe are making 300 face shields to help help workers at a coronavirus testing site in Syracuse County. They make and sell 3D printers in their house by the name of Budmen Industries.   Last Saturday they produced 50 shields using seven 3D printers, they are now using 16 printers to produce 250 before the end of this week.

If you are able to read this sentence, you not only have your English teacher to thank (as the popular bumper sticker suggests), but also your brain. The human brain — all of 3 pounds (1,350 grams) — consumes over 10% of the human body's total energy, yet most of its weight is water and makes up very little of the body's total mass.      The recent explosion of 3D printing technologies in the field of neurosurgery has made creating a 3D brain model using CT-converted STL fil

While MRI is an extremely sensitive tool for detecting tissue abnormalities, association of signal changes with an underlying pathological process is usually not straightforward. This digital model can then be used to create a 3D-printed custom holder for the brain.

The word "cervical" is derived from Latin and simply translates to "of the neck." The neck has a huge responsibility in supporting the head, while also allowing enough flexibility to change the position of the head—a full 60 to 80 degrees of rotation in most healthy adults.
