Currently available for heart, ear, nose, throat and orthopedic procedures, Biomodex’s 3D printed organs are helping surgeons prepare incisions and the overall operation plan. Using MRI scans and ultrasounds, Biomodex’s multi-material 3D printing processes replicate patient-specific organs. The combination of different materials in the printing process allows the simulated organs to closely match aspects of the human body that are unique to each individual - tissue and bone densities and the placement of veins and arteries. As well as patient-specific organs, the printing process developed by the company allows for the production of disease and injury-specific replicas that are ideal…
