The 3D printing industry has been advancing rapidly over the past few years. As well as being widely used to protect ancient cultural relics in aerospace, manufacturing and other fields, the 3D-printing technology is continuously released in medical industry. Its value alone has an unlimited market. Here are the details:
Medical models and surgical guides can be customized using 3D printed medical models

To create a medical model, you can perform three-dimensional modelling based on CT or MRI images of the patient before the operation. You then print out the model using a 3-D printer. The main purpose of a 3D-printed model is for the doctor to be able to visualize the three dimensional structure of a surgical site in advance of the surgery. This allows the doctor to plan the procedure. This is especially useful for complex surgery. It reduces the risks of surgery and increases the success rate.

Applications of 3D Printing in Dentistry

Dental clinics, laboratories and dentists need to take into consideration the cost of dental treatment. To improve efficiency and lower costs, many forward-thinking dental clinics have adopted digital dental technology. Recently, software-based dental restorations have gained popularity. Digital dental technology coupled with 3D printing offers high precision and efficiency at a low cost.

Applications of 3D Printing in Medical Device Manufacturing

The manufacturing of medical devices is similar to other products. For the verification of design, prototypes must be produced during the product development phase. The metal 3D-printing technology has advanced beyond prototypes in the medical device field to handle complex manufacturing tasks. In order to repair an anterior cruciate knee ligament injury, a doctor first has to remove any remaining anterior ligament and then precisely replace the graft. In order to achieve accuracy and minimize invasiveness, doctors must use a sophisticated surgical tool. This nickel-chromium alloy is a hard-to-process metal. Traditional machining is required to make the tool, which takes a lot of time and costs a lot. In this situation, metal 3D-printing technology is a better option for manufacturing.

Use of 3D printing for manufacturing medicines

Three-dimensional printing has an impact on pharmaceuticals in four ways: first, it allows for personalized customization of active ingredients; second, it allows patients to have personalized treatment plans. The layer-by-layer method of printing allows for the tight combination of different coatings so that a patient can take fewer or smaller tablets. 3D-printing technology can be used to print various shapes that are appealing to children who do not like taking medicine.
