Research Institution

Surgical training requires an understanding of the human body"s complex 3-dimensional anatomical structures and the spatial relationships of nerves, blood vessels and other vital structures. Learning these spatial skills requires a lengthy training period and much practice that usually takes place in the operating room while under the supervision of a senior surgeon at great financial cost and potential risk to patients. Alternatively, there exist expensive models that may be used before a student can master the necessary skills. Advanced Diagnostic Technologies (ADxT) has developed a novel, low cost, 3D printer for synthetic tissue deposition. This 3D printing tool is useful for a wide range of applications including surgery simulation, endoscopic and intravascular procedures, as well as clinical task training, basic medical skills development, medical device design verification or visualization.
