Possibilities of Preoperative Medical Models Made by 3D Printing or Additive Manufacturing.

Salmi M - J Med Eng (2016)

Bottom Line: Software types required were Osirix, 3Data Expert, and Rhinoceros.Different 3D printing processes were binder jetting and material extrusion.Surgeons should be aware of the new possibilities and in most cases help from mechanical engineering side is needed.

ABSTRACT
Most of the 3D printing applications of preoperative models have been focused on dental and craniomaxillofacial area. The purpose of this paper is to demonstrate the possibilities in other application areas and give examples of the current possibilities. The approach was to communicate with the surgeons with different fields about their needs related preoperative models and try to produce preoperative models that satisfy those needs. Ten different kinds of examples of possibilities were selected to be shown in this paper and aspects related imaging, 3D model reconstruction, 3D modeling, and 3D printing were presented. Examples were heart, ankle, backbone, knee, and pelvis with different processes and materials. Software types required were Osirix, 3Data Expert, and Rhinoceros. Different 3D printing processes were binder jetting and material extrusion. This paper presents a wide range of possibilities related to 3D printing of preoperative models. Surgeons should be aware of the new possibilities and in most cases help from mechanical engineering side is needed.

fig4: Physical and virtual preoperative model of knee.

Mentions: Binder jetting with Zprinter 450 (3D Systems, Inc.) was selected as a process. The material used was ZP151. Both preoperative knee models were 3D printed in monochrome mode and in Figure 4 physical model of first one and virtual model of second one are shown.
