Helping surgeons prepare for life-saving operations
Researchers at NTU have found a way of transforming patients' scan data into 3D printed models that are identical in shape, size and texture to real human organs.
By applying the latest advanced manufacturing techniques to the healthcare industry, our researchers are providing ground-breaking solutions that will support surgeons to undertake highly technical and often life-saving surgical operations with fewer complications.
The developments will also benefit trainee clinicians, allowing them to build their operating experience before working on real-life patients in theatre.
Through innovation and the development of advanced materials, NTU is shaping the future of medical technologies.
