Recently an interesting article has been published in the JRCR about 3D printing in a pediatric case. I am curious what YOUR thoghts are where you see the future role of 3D printing in Medicine, particularly Radiology. Thank you.

I can imagine not only assistance in preoperative planning (creation of models) but also development of prostheses - customized to the patient. Especially in orthopedics this might be of value to avoid - or at least procrastinate - wear and tear/loosening of hardware.
Education might also have its benefit, in example teaching anatomy, dissection courses (instead of corpses) etc. Or training surgeons (residents) on models before letting them work on real patients. Well, and in the afternoon, we just push a button and a 3D modeled coffee or lunch comes out of the box... ;-)

hi roland 3D copying for radiology is an emerging topic difficult to imagine where it might lead to. maybe we will print the 3D image of a fetus soone in obstretic US to give the mother a model of her future child .... or we will print the size of the liver before a transplant to better assess the appriopriate size ... all possible I guess......
