Stories about progress in medicine through 3d printing
Researchers at the University of Toronto have developed a portable 3D skin printer that can repair deep wounds in two minutes or less.
By embedding platelets into a 3D printed mixture of cells and gel, a team of researchers at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln hope to improve the healing properties of tissue implants and skin grafts with printable body tissue.
Scientists at UC San Diego create a 3D printed wearable to monitor stomach activity throughout the day, replacing the need for invasive probes.
Combining medically accurate models with allegorical artworks, new exhibition "The Heart of the Matter" takes a closer look at the complexity -- and beauty -- of the human heart using 3D printed sculptures.
A trio of surgeons at a trauma hospital in the Netherlands, the ETZ, are demonstrating how 3D printing can help improve surgical diagnosis, operation time, and overall patient care.
Researchers from the UK developed a revolutionary 3D printed brain scanner which is effective even when a patient is moving - whether the movement is as simple as nodding their head or as active as playing ping-pong.
Scientists from Manchester, UK are using 3D bioprinting to investigate and better understand the brain's neurovascular unit (NVU) which will hopefully lead to improved treatments for neurodegenerative diseases.
Surgeons in Wales used a 3D printed titanium implant to rebuild the chest of a 70-year-old man after a cancer removal operation which took three ribs and part of his breastbone.
Tucker, a five-year-old Australian sheep dog, can run on four feet again thanks to a 3D printed prosthetic paw. The hope is that the paw prosthetic will improve Tucker's mobility and his quality of life.
