Before 3D models, surgeons had to rely on photographs and other forms of 2D imaging to plan and execute a procedure. With 3D technology, however, physicians can clear up any confusion about patient anatomy and plan their strategies for surgery before entering the operating room.
Without access to the imaging technology, surgeons had few means with which to understand their patients' soft or hard tissue, let alone what the tissue required during surgery. 3D modeling is, without a doubt, one of the most significant advancements in the field of plastic surgery. But there is still work to be done.Read More
With the help of 3D guides—customized, 3D printed surgical tools—physicians can simulate complex surgeries prior to operation and use the tools as points of reference throughout any procedure.Read More
