  1. Nice review paper on Medical Applications for 3D Printing: Current and Projected Uses: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC4189697
  2. From personalized replacement body parts to safer surgeries, 3D printing is revolutionizing medicine. Dr. Frank Rybicki, an American expert in the field, tells Andrew Duffy what the future holds ­— and why he’s set up shop in Ottawa. http://ottawacitizen.com/news/local-news/the-3d-dreams-of-dr-frank-rybicki
  3. The University of Wollongong, Australia has announced a new free online course in 3D bioprinting. Details available from the link below: https://www.engineersaustralia.org.au/portal/news/3d-printing-will-provide-body-parts-future
  4. This interesting article, which recently appeared in Make Magazine, demonstrates the true potential of 3D-printed anatomical models: http://makezine.com/magazine/hands-on-health-care/

    Amazing 3D Printed Models on Display at RSNA 2014

    Fascinating article - thanks for sharing, Dr Mike!
  6. Monash University in Australia is using 3D printing to reduce the demand on human body parts for teaching anatomy. The link to the original article is here.
  7. This excellent article, written in layman's terms, recently appeared in Make Magazine: "3D printing is all around us, opening possibilities for us to do in our garages what traditionally could only be done by large organizations. It’s now possible to 3D-print a model of your own bones, innards, and other anatomical structures starting from a CT scan 3D image, and using only open source software tools. We show you how to do it using a couple of common desktop 3D printers ..."
