Neurosurgical simulations using 3D Models

Toshihiro Mashiko

Three-dimensional (3D) printing has been a widespread technique across various fields of the business world. For medical use, 3D printed products are mainly used for surgical simulations. For example, prior to a plastic surgery for craniofacial deformity, surgeons create a skull model, dissect it, and try to collate the parts into their appropriate positions. In the present session, I will describe my experience of surgical simulations using 3D models in neurosurgery
