3D Printed Human Organs
The future possibilities are certainly manifold and remarkably vast. We’d like to increase the number of models on different organs in order to promote a high-fidelity simulation of several essential surgical procedures or steps. To this end we would like to learn how to set up a 3D printing from DICOM files to be able to print, in addition to standard cases, also particularly complex or particular clinical cases that are sometimes encountered in clinical practice. In general, 3D printing with LAY-FOMM interests us to promote innovative, technological and above all practical training of new surgical generations through increasingly advanced and high-fidelity simulations.
The collaboration of Sharebot and the Department of General Surgery of the Fatebenefratelli Hospital in Erba has made it possible to highlight the importance of the adoption of 3D printing in the innovation field, opening the doors to new types of simulations and high-fidelity surgical training. This application is just one of the possible scenarios that this technology allows to explore. Whether it is reproductions of organs for experimental phases or implantable prostheses in patients, 3D printing is already becoming a key tool in the branch of medicine innovation.
Sharebot is a young and innovative company, with 4 different 3D printing technologies, the last of which is the metal 3d printing, with an R&D that is always updated and operational on the innovations that these modern technologies can offer. It boasts over 3,500 printers around the world including 160 in universities. It ranks among the first places in Europe and the only one on the continent with 4 3D printing technologies: filament, resin, thermoplastic and metal powders.
