Congenital cardiology 3D printing techniques & imaging science

A 3D congenital cardiology research study cited in the ‘Journal of Clinical Imaging Science’ identifies how medical imaging has been ‘revolutionised by three-dimensional (3D) imaging techniques’.

The research study authors from Leuven acknowledge however, that ‘visualisation of the 3D content on two-dimensional flat screens’ is creating limits.

‘3D-printing of graspable models could become a feasible technique to overcome this gap.’
