An article on new 3D printing technology that allows surgeons to print highly realistic, functionally accurate replicas of complex anatomical structures quotes Adnan Siddiqui, MD, PhD, professor and vice chair of neurosurgery. “We designed a series of models with varying levels of tortuosity from the chest to the brain,” he said. “It’s impossible to do in animals or in patients. 3D printing makes it so easy to do that in a smooth, streamlined fashion.”
