About This File
Two models are included (collapsed left lung and the healed left lung six weeks later):
Model1. Lungs with trachea model with left lung collapsed. The collapsed left resulted from a 16 year old male who suffered a bicycle accident and fracturing four left ribs. The model was segmented using 3DSlicer from a reconstructed CT chest/abdomen/pelvis scan with an IV contrast agent and a slice thickness=2.50mm. Scanfile:B:301lungs
Model2. Lungs with trachea model with healed left lung (CT scan six weeks after collapsed lung). The model was segmented using 3DSlicer from a reconstructed CT chest scan without an IV contrast agent and a slice thickness=2.50mm. Scanfile:B:6lung
The models are full size. However, Model1 was printed at 90% and Model2 was printed at 100%. Only the left was 3D printed.
No smoothing algorithms were applied so the extent of the ribs penetrating the left lung could be seen on the 3D printed model. As a result the models will have some noise surrounding the trachea and bronchi. This noise will appear as unwanted structures and extrusions. Also it appears that the left lung in Model1 may have some blood build up near the heart. As a result several disks appear on the model in 3DBuilder. These disks were independent of the left lung in the 3D printed model.
