Someday My Prints Will Come: Additive Manufacturing Insights
Additive manufacturing (AM) or 3D printing technology is impacting how orthopedic surgeries are planned and executed. 3D printers are becoming smaller, more affordable, and more accessible, and free access to open source 3D imaging software has made clinical implementation widely feasible.
Over the past decade AM advancements have improved how orthopedic surgeons can approach both common and complex cases. Advanced imaging studies can help to create musculoskeletal models to create custom orthopedic guides and instruments.
To gain more insight into how additive manufacturing for orthopedics is evolving, ODT spoke to multiple industry experts, including B9Creations CEO, Shon Anderson.Read the full article, published by Orthopedic Design & Technology (ODT) Magazine, here.
