BCN3D announced that its 3D printing technology is assisting surgeons in the development of biomedical models.
FREMONT, CA: BCN3D, a major 3D printer manufacturer in Barcelona, Spain, provides its 3D printing technology to help surgeons develop biomedical models and utilizes them in surgical procedures, especially in cancer-related circumstances. Dr Gustavo Nari of Argentina is a clear example of how 3D printing technology can be used. Using IDEX technology from his BCN3D Sigmax printer, he partnered with engineering firm Mirai3D to create and produce biomedical models that greatly enhance his surgical planning procedure.
Dr Gustavo Nari used the IDEX technology in his BCN3D Sigmax printer to partner with engineering startup Mirai3D to design and fabricate biomedical models for an enhanced surgical planning phase. 3D printing is gaining a reputation as a valuable asset for those looking for innovative ways to increase quality and precision in healthcare practices worldwide.
Dr Gustavo Nari of Hospital Transito Caceres de Allende in Córdoba, Argentina, has partnered with Mirai3D, a biomedical engineering startup that prioritizes 3D printing, virtual reality, and innovative materials in the healthcare field. They are making biomodels to develop surgical plans for a better anatomical understanding of clinical cases with the IDEX technology's help in a BCN3D Sigmax. Dr Nari is witnessing firsthand the benefits of this technology in surgical procedures from beginning to end.
The necessary surgeries, particularly in oncology, are intricate and complex, with doctors frequently have to navigate significant organs. They will schedule their access routes and get a clear understanding of the step-by-step procedure using preoperative surgical preparation as a starting point. It also enables an anticipatory preparation for any potential complications.
Doctors may use X-rays and 3D printing technology to create a virtual image of the region of interest using the patient's scans. The model can be printed in lifelike dimensions and sizes. The model can be printed in various materials to mimic various parts of the body, like bones or tissue, with the help of IDEX technology. IDEX technology can also be applied to several colors, providing doctors with a visual representation of the various areas. It ensures that doctors can receive further training to expand their experience and better understand case-specific evidence.
