3-D printing and Hollywood special FX bring heightened reality to surgical training
from Journal of Neurosurgery via Medical Xpress
A collaborative team of neurosurgeons, neuroradiologists, simulation engineers and special effects experts have developed a unique tool to teach neurosurgical trainees how to perform minimally invasive surgical procedures. Using 3-D printing and Hollywood-style special effects, the team constructed a training simulation model whose physical and functional qualities closely mimic those of the head and brain structures of an adolescent human patient.
