Time is critical when a patient undergoes surgery. The longer your patient is under anesthesia and their internal tissue exposed, the greater the risk. The faster you can finish surgery and the patient can begin recovery, the better the chances for a healthy outcome. This requires precise advance planning and effective communication among the medical staff and with your patient.
Medical practitioners who have no previous experience with 3D printing can use Mcor paper-based 3D printers to quickly, easily and affordably create accurate and realistic physical 3D anatomical models from MRI and CT scans to serve as surgical guides for implant pre-contouring, pre-surgical planning, custom implants, as well as for communication, presentation, education and prosthesis design.
