Abstract

Three-dimensional (3D) printed anatomic models and guides designed from volumetric medical imaging data are used clinically to provide increased comprehension of anatomy, more exact pathology evaluation, and more precise surgical intervention. The technical and professional work that goes into image acquisition, segmentation, computer-aided design, and 3D printing of medical models is extensive. This chapter, through the use of illustrative case examples, provides readers with a detailed understanding of this advanced application of 3D printing technology in today’s medical practice.
