First full human 3D printed for radiation therapy research

from 3D Printing Progress

For the past year, Louisiana State University Biological and Agricultural Engineering senior Meagan Moore of Baton Rouge has been working to 3D print the first actual-size "human body" for radiation therapy research. While current phantoms cost $40,000, have no limbs, and don't represent every body type, “Marie” represents an entire human body that is more realistic and only costs $500 to create. Using 3D scans of five real women, Moore developed a lifelike female phantom made of bioplastic that can be filled with water to establish varying density similar to a patient. more
